A good macro lens would be needed. I used my 105mm2.8 lens for my macro shoots. It is a good lens and sometimes to get the subject even closer, I attached the Raynox lens. One key note on macro photography is about light. As we move very close to the subject, our traditional position of the flash will not be able to reach the subject. We need to improvised so that the flash can reach the subject such as extending with a milk bottle or buy a twin or ring flash. Macro is exciting as it brings us into another dimension, something we do not see daily.
