Day 63: Shooting Details on Film

This is a new find for me and I really wanted to share it with you here. My friend and photography crush, Charity Maurer linked me to these babies and they’re a game changer!

When shooting details on film, I usually use my 100mm lens attached to my 35mm camera. It lets me use the macro lens just as I normally would with my digital lens:

But if I want to use a medium format camera, then I need to figure something else out. These Hoya Filters are the perfect solution for that problem! They come in +1, +2 and +4. They simply screw onto your lens and they magnify the subject.

Pro Tip: You can also STACK them! Something I learned from Joy Michelle’s video which you can check out right here:

Friends, that was day 63! I hope to see you tomorrow as we continue our film series with: What is the difference between 35mm and 120 film?
