Just looking around the web with regards to free articles about basic introduction to macro photography. Thought I’d share them below. It is interesting how most of these blogs and articles are really quite poor in terms of the design – but I’m not sharing the links because of the design and creativeness of the web pages, rather because of the content.

I’m planning to post some links in another blog post to creative macro photography which show images for inspiration. This post is intended for the absolute beginner – so they really are very basic. The various articles are based on a variety of camera makes including Nikon and Canon.
