I love shooting macro. I guess it’s the surprise of what is revealed using special lenses to magnify and enhance the hidden things we often overlook. Everyday objects reveal themselves to be more than extraordinary at high magnification. Flowers, while beautiful as a whole reveal secret treasures in the minute details. My macro tools include the Canon 12.5mm and 25mm Extension Tubes, Canon EF 180mm f/3.5L Macro USM, the EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM and the MP-E 65mm f/2.8 1-5x Macro Photo. These are augmented by lighting options: Canon Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX and the Macro Twin Lite MT-24EX with it’s movable heads allowing creative lighting accents.
I have a number of examples in my Flickr collection which can be viewed by clicking here.
