The following is a list of equipment used in taking macro photographs. Not all of it is neccessary. Some of it is very expensive, all that is really neccessary is a camera and a lens, but these are gadgets and accessories that may help, if not they are just cool.

  • Camera...SLR or medium format.Autofocus or manual, (auto is much easier and it allows complete control like the manuial)
  • Lens...Macro lenses allow for a much larger range of focus making it possible to be very close to your subject.
  • Tripod...Hands are shaky, enough said.
  • Extension tubes...increase focal distance for close-up focusing.
  • Eyes...DUH!
