Advice on close-up shots
Hi, relatively inexperienced in this area and wld appreciate advice from the pros. I need to take close-up shots of some products and my canon 850IS is definitely not capable of it.

How much wld it cost to purchase an average lens that can take close-up shots with good clarity? Assuming I can get hold of a DSLR type camera.

Alternatively, wld anyone be interested to take up this simple assignment for a small token fee? I definitely cannot afford what is paid to professional studios, so keep that in mind =). Also let me know how much you are expecting....

Tks!

looking at your website, IMHO what you need most is not a DSLR, but a product light tent which is like a mini-studio for your product. If you are on a budget, you can build one yourself.

Try to mount the camera on a tripod, turn on macro mode, use 2sec timer mode should able to get good macro shots.
