Inexpensive Macro Shot

Posted by Joshua |



Interested to shot macro objects but have no budget to buy macro lens? Now there’s an inexpensive way to convert your kit lens or tele lens to macro-able. Macroable?? Tallboyz’s broken English. Hahaha!

Here recommend you +4 close up filter, you also can stalk it up to 2 filters to have more macro sense. This close up filter would only cost around RM30 to RM60 depend on the circular size.



Here are 2 test shots I made with a single +4 close up filter.

F5.6 1/1600 sec 135mm ISO200


F5.6 1/200 sec 135mm ISO200

Hugolim - Thanks for you comment. The blue fringing I believe is cause by the UV filter and stalked up my close up filter. =)
