Hi hi ... I'm interested in macro-photography and I was wondering what are the "tools" I need?

I'm using Canon EOS 300. Any lens to recommend?
What are the prices like?

Thank you. :D

:confused: Actually horrr .... no budget but definitely not very very EX mah.
'cos if I don't know how to use it, then will be waste of $$ right?

Okie, let's say in the range of $900 - $1200? Possible?
Gears? Geee I'm REALLY "new"... only the camera with basic lens 35-90mm and a tripod.

What else do I need? :sweatsm:

What is the first subject that you wish to shoot? Currently you are limited by the shortest focusing distant your current lens can get to. Try some close up flower shots for start. The most important equipment is a sturdy tripod. The lower the tripod can get to the ground the better. While you get more adept at it, you may want to start investing on a good macro lens then follow by a good flash.
