getting to grips with macro photography …

It’s only recently that I have decided to give macro photography a go. I have been inspired in the main by my wife who has started to take some stunning pictures with her Canon M50 and dedicated macro lens.

The inspiration was such that I put my hand in my pocket and recently added the Sigma 105mm f2.8 DG Macro HSM lens to my collection, the pictures in this Blog post are taken with that lens on a Canon EOS 90D.

It feels like a steep learning curve but I am reasonably happy with the early images I am getting, although I am very aware that I have a lot to learn and lots and lots of room for improvement, but mighty oaks and acorns spring to mind!
