  • MEK ( old4570 ) guides to Macro Photography -- Beginners Guide to Macro Photography . ( My first attempt at writing a guide ) This guide remained lost for over a year till I found it on a back up drive . -- My 2nd attempt at a guide to Macro Photography - more comprehensive than the first and covers the close focus filter rather well .. I also tacked on my guide to adding light ( flash ) ...
    Always meant to expand on this second guide , but I find that talking about equipment tends to polarize some people ...

    Never forget there is more than one way to macro , the correct way is what works for you ! And in regards to that , remember that the proof is in the pudding . The pudding is good , or its not . And whats important ( most of all ) is that you ( the photographer ) are happy .

    G'day mate

    I have had a qwik glance at this beaut eBook and downloaded it for off-line review [and I will get back to you off-line]
    May I offer two quick coments -
    a) yes it does show beaut examples of differing camera / lens techniques, and that will be of benefit to many
    b) you make reference to "Close up Filters" and this term is incorrect. The devices are "Close up Lenses" as they are curved and have a distinct focal length
    Many photo mags incorrectly label them as 'filters' as they screw onto the lens accessory thread designed for the use of filters - but a close up lens is not a filter
