I’ve always wanted to get into macro photography, but canon macro lenses can get pretty pricey!
I recently found out that you could use old camera lenses on DSLR cameras by attaching a little thing called, adapters. I paid no more than $25 dollars for mine. (photodiox pro FD to EOS)
for this little test, i used the Canon FD 50mm 3.5 Macro lens. You can find these kind of lenses at your local thrift shop or flea markets.($25-75)
I love love how beautiful and how close I am able to get to the subject. I’ve never owned a “real” macro lens but from what I’ve experienced with my own lenses, i am liking what I can do with this lens.
Here is a look at the RAW image

i am so excited about my new find that i wanted everyone to know! i am more than happy with my little macro lens!
