The great weather we’ve had recently gave the perfect opportunity to try out some macro lenses I received for my birthday. I would love a proper macro lens for my canon but they’re upwards of around £200! The lens used to take the pictures below was around £10 and as you can see they do a pretty good job – it’s a Neewer close up + 10 lens and simply screws on to the end of a standard lens and acts as a magnifier. I had so much fun practising on some of the plants in the garden, it’s so close up that you feel like you’re revealing another world. So many possibilities... I’d love to try and take some after it rains to see if I can get some rain drops on the leaves and flowers. It takes some practise to get good images and I’ll admit most of these were luck! But for £10 it’s such a bargain and the kit also comes with + 1, +2 and + 4 lenses. These are my favourites, I can't wait to take the lens out again and have another go.
This last one is of the + 10 lens used to take the pictures above.
