    Default Need advise.... Newbie who wants to try Macro....

    Any comment on using Tamron 90mm to start macro photography?.... what else do I need to buy to have a clear insect profile photo?

    Appreciate your advise. Thanks.

    1) Tripod/ tripod head
    2) Ring flash/ normal flash will do too
    3) macro rail (optional)
    4) extension tubes (optional)
    5) close-up lens (Raynox, Canon 500D, 250D, etc) (optional)
    6) Lots and lots of practice.
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.
