If you are the type of photographer that likes to just plan on a “Photo Day” to go out and just take pictures in the beautiful landscape around you, then there is one thing that you should always take with you. And that would be a set of close-up filters.
If you are going out to take photos of wildlife, then this set of close-up filters should be part of your camera equipment.
If you are going out to take some portraits, or wedding photos, then you should take a set of close-up filters with you.
Close-up filters are amazingly good quality now. I have found I use a set quite often. It certainly is less expensive than a whole new macro lens. To but a set, like you see above, all you need is the filter size when you order them.
WHY SHOULD I CARRY THESE WITH ME ALWAYS?
The world of close-ups is beautiful. And to miss some of the opportunities that are around you would be devastating. It’s part of “LEARNING TO SEE” a photo. But, also, what if you go to take some photos of wildlife, and the opportunities just don’t come. Now is when you pull out the close-up filters and become a “flower Photographer” instead of a wildlife photographer. And the same thing is for the “landscape photographer”. Look around and see the beauty around you in the close-up world.
