Macro photography is cool, but there are a couple of things to watch out for… For one, your camera’s auto-focus may not work well with a macro lens, so manual focus is a good idea. Second, the depth of field is very small, so I’ve found it easier to lock the focus and move the camera back and forth to get what I want. Third, high powered macro attachments usually have a *lot* of fringing outside the focal point. Maybe more expensive lenses would cure this, maybe not. Finally, you should consider reviewing macro photos on a large screen during your photo shoot because what may look fine in the tiny viewfinder could really be slightly out of focus or otherwise ruined.
