An Intro to Macro Filters by Jules1983 An Intro to Macro Filters by Jules1983
I have received a lot of notes recently, asking about macro filters. So here you go, the myth revealed :D
I use them for ALL my macro shots, and if you ask me - I'm more than happy with the outcome.

Questions? PLLLLEEEEAAAASSSSSEEEE ASK!

Thank you very much for this guide. This is an excellent alternative. I really don't feel like shelling out $500 for the 60mm 2.8 macro.

My pleasure! :) It's funny, I was a student with little to no money when I wrote this. I could easily afford a macro lens now, but I just don't see the point anymore, too used to macro filters ;)

I'm in the same boat as you. Technically, I could get the professional 105mm f2.8, but I've come to appreciate my earned savings much more. I'd rather watch it grow and continue creating with minimum spending.

I'm definitely buying some macro filters haha. Do you have a recommendation for a specific brand? I also shoot with the Nikon D7100.

I'm assuming that most people use them in conjunction with a macro lens, but I was wondering, what would happen if you put a macro filter onto, say, a 40-150mm lens?

Question here:D
Why are you calling them filters?:D Those are lenses if I'm not totally wrong:)

But you convinced me to buy a set of close up filters/lenses :) Not that happy with the outcome of the reverse lens-technique.
