I am decently new to photography and I am very interested in macro shooting and close up photos. I was wondering what everyone thought about this type of photography and whats a good way to start off. Currently I am using a 18-200mm lens on my Canon 60d and it is a really good kit.

Thanks for the help!

Hi Greg,

You can check my blogs out for some macro kit I am using, I use Nikon so can't give a definite answer to your Canon kit.
The main thing is cost! A dedicated macro lens, sturdy tripod, flash and practice, practice and some more practice.
Good luck and good shooting.

You could try some extension tubes
