“I’m always mentally photographing everything as practice.” Minor White
I have always wanted to try out macro photography, but I wasn’t sure if I will stick with it, so I didn’t want to buy a macro lens. A friend mentioned that so called extension tubes was a cheaper option that could give ok results.
