would you happen to have any tips on how to use the canon 50mm compact macro lens?

ladeeeedah says:

Wonderful tutorials! Thanks a bunch team@CanonAustralia, you’re helping CanonWorld! Keep up with the good job!

CanonAustralia says:

Lighting and background colours are important for macro shots. Remember that the depth of plane field is flat, so use that to your creative advantage. Go well! Cheers, the Canon team.

She is so sweet, i would love to take one of her classes. I have a 5d mark ii and even have a 100 macro and just am seldom happy with my ring shots. Any tips on getting those done well?

CanonAustralia says:

She is using an EOS 5D Mk II. Many thanks, the Canon team.

CanonAustralia says:

Skotyzgirl says:

Love the video!! I just got the Canon 100mm f/2.8L IS Macro and I can’t wait to use it! I want to try the ink drops you demonstrated! That would make a great art piece on my wall!! The backwards lens trick was also an awesome trick. Thank you!

This helped me out soo much! THANKYOU!
i just got ultra macro photos of a dragon fly with my canon 600d with a reversed lens!
ive got an adapter on the way so i dont have to hold/tape it on!

BrandonKingVloggin says:

This was one heck of a video! The BEST tips I’ve ever heard for Macro! I never thought of using my lens backward to be a macro lens!!! Thanks so much!

Antonno says:

wow. amazing tips, especially using the lens backwards! I just got more serious about photography, as a hobby though and I am getting excited about it every day 🙂 Please keep these videos up so I can learn more and more 🙂 Too bad I can’t afford the great gear and most of all lenses Canon makes. But I was able to get the 7D which is a great one too 🙂 Thumbs up again for these videos! Very inspiring!
