As a photographer, the best genre which fascinates me is Macro Photography. I used to get allured with the pictures covering the delicate details of the unseen world, especially, the tiny insects, which ultimately triggered my passion towards Macro photography. My journey as a Macro photographer started in the last quarter of the year 2018. Initially, I used to click Marco subjects with my Nikon D750 with a 50 mm prime lens, but, it required a lot of cropping and the results were not satisfactory. I was looking for an inexpensive macro filter which could yield better results for a new Macro photographer like me, before I could test my hand on a dedicated Macro lens. Then, I switched to Tamron 70-300 mm with Raynox 250 macro filter. After that, there was no looking back.
