Exploring New Ideas with the Macro Lens
For a while Ben has been interested in creating up-close images, especially with his portraiture. The latest addition to his collection is the Canon 50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro Autofocus Lens. It allows him to see his subjects from a different perspective, broadening his visual vocabulary.
One of his first experiments was photographing Trudie’s garden.
A week later he took an unusual close-up on a portrait shoot. The similarities between the bleeding hearts and the lips are uncanny.
TIP: Ben gets all his equipment from B&H Photo. Great service, good prices and they’ve got everything. Here’s a link for his new macro lens.
