Over the past week or so I've been sharing lots of macro photos on my Instagram and I've been asked a few times how I capture these photos.
I've been after a macro lens for ages but I can't afford one at the moment. I used to have a Tamron 90mm for my Nikon dSLR quite a few years ago. So I looked for an alternative way of capturing macro photos.
What I did was purchase a set of extension tubes for my Olympus OM-D E-M10 camera, these cost around £15 from Amazon and I've been really pleased with them.
The beauty of these tubes is that they fit straight to the body and then the lens goes on to that so any lens will work and fit to them. I know some screw into the lens like a filter but I found these are more versatile.
I've created a video to work with this blog too so please have a watch of this and hopefully it'll inspire you to have a go at macro photography.
