The spring has come and we have again another season to shoot for colourful scenes. Althought the flowers are not an usual subject in my photography, it is a fantastic element to show the colours of this season. Although the geranium from the picture was shot during August at home, in Marbella.
The macro was done adding to my 70-200 telephoto lens, a Canon 500D close-up lens. In fact, in the strictly meaning of macro in photography, this close-up lens that is screwed on to the front of a lens like a filter, only provides an increase in the magnification factor, but without having a form factor 1:1. This lens is an economical (around 150 €) and so light solution to do close-up photography, without degrading so much the optical performance of EF lenses and not expending extra money in an specific macro lens.
At home, Marbella (Spain)
