Tips for Amazing Photos

Secret's out! My Swiss army knife lens is a 100mm MACRO! Anyone else guilty?
Great advice – as an alternate on an extremely tight budget I also shoot on vintage glass with cheap extension rings for a macro effect – another option.
can you recommend the 90mm f2.8 from sony for Fullframe?
the rain part b-roll had me feeling like👏 bonus 👏 meme 👏
@Peter McKinnon You know this is exactly what I was looking for! I have been searching on what lens to buy, and was leaning on to a macro. Thanks so much! 🙂
why is it not 20 bucks so i can buy it
But it costs more than my camera..
are all lens compatible with Nikons and cannons…? I have a Nikon D3400 and saw a second hand MC Macro 70-210mm ?
I love the 2 min vids. A wealth of info, well produced, well delivered, to the point (so rare), entertaining and knowledgeable. AWESOME. THANK U.
Just a question while talking about lenses and utility… Im in the go to get a proper camera and im choosing between the aps-c sony a6300 or the FF sony a7 mk II. Will you be able to notice which camera shot what assuming that you have the same equivalent lens on both cameras? I know that FF gets better low light capabilities, but im not out to get the best low light shots either.
The choosing process is tearing me apart =P
I think I`ll go for the 105 mm Sigma.
Cool video but I really wanna know what happened your knuckles? You been scraping ?
You have a lot of energy. Have you considered riding a bicycle for Tesla? You could power most of Australia while reviewing lenses.
So according to you canon lens is the best? Or the tamarin might be a greater choice? What's your advice?
Can anyone tell me any macro lense but for nikon users ? I want one like peter suggested but for nikkon camera 🙄
Quick trick:Turn your lens around and you will get macro.
I shoot mostly with my Sony 90mm Macro lens. Unless I need that ultra wide, then I switch to 12-24 or 24-105. But, macro lenses are so damn sharp it was the best lens purchase.
Yes the 100mm L is definately amazing especially for portraits!
If i buy macro lens like 55-250mm can i shoot like moon so it looks standardly good or what i dont really understand these things (please someone answer fast bc iam about to buy lens tommorow
Would you recommend a 50mm 2.5 macro over the 50mm 1.8stm?
hey pete just wanna know how to get our subject in focus. I have nikon 40mm lens and i'm trying to get the right focus but it's not working.
Can i use the same lenses with my crop camera and get similar results?
Thank you for sharing! Think I need one now 🙂
God I love watching ur videos ! Keep up the slick content bro
Your thumbnails are off the hook! Your a boss man
I'm curious as to why you never refer Ellusionist by name. Also the product shots you did for them are mint! I use to use the shot of the Prohibition collection as my wallpaper 🙂
You are close to New Brunswick?
the best creature/teacher
Thank you sir, for this AMAZING tip. I love it!
If your budget is tight, have another look at the Raynox 250. Best 75$ you will ever spend on.P/s: I turned this into a 1-minute video by x2 the speed 😛
peter 400 dollars is way to much for a student! XD more like 50 dollars would be better
The only lens I shoot with is a 70-300mm lens with macro. I love it ! Gets some pretty amazing shots with it
Was looking for something specific for ages to answer my question about the lens and came across this which covered everything I wanted to know within two mins… Also seems like a really non-annoying YouTuber so you've got my sub
I am the only oké that look at hoe hands and think. He was in a fight??? He has a lot of dries up blood there.. and that you see if someone fight….
Can u mention which is cheaper one for my canon 80d
Do you think that owning this 100mm and an 85mm is useless or is there a real difference between these two lenses ?
What's an equivalent in the field of Sony Lens?
I’m a bit shocked the macro gets dismissed 😱 lol. I absolutely love this type of photography, you can really capture a whole new world, it fascinates me 😁. I’m glad now to have learnt it gives an awesome filming technique too, woop! Thanks for sharing 🙃
I always thought I could only shoot macro with macro lens, but I was wrong!!!
Hay bro i need canon 200D I am not afford it please please 😊😊I am realy thankful to you
But BUGS ARE AWESOME!!!!!!
i get a 100mm L today, it is great.
great vid! thx
I like how 2 minutes Tuesday is about 3 minutes.
How can anyone not like macro photos? xD
Liked, subbed, what lenses were those, and who did you get in a fight with? lol
Canon 100mm 2.8 macro or sigma 105mm 2.8 macro?
I heard your camera beep, I don’t like camera beeps, don’t let it happen again 😡
what is the differnce between 100 mm macro and some lets say 18-120mm zoom lens set up at 100 mm? Can 100mm be macro and non macro?
I’ve been wanting to get one!!
What macrolens is prefered to make product photos? 50mm or 100? Or something else? 😀 Could anyone respond? Thanks! 😀
I have EF versionLove from Pakistan ❤
After 10 videos later and having me staying up late instead of thinking I have work tomorrow you got my sub!
The best thing about a macro lens is that it let's you see the same subjective in a totally new perspective.
Does anyone shoot with Sony? Would like to know How does the Sony 50mm F2.8 Macro Lens compare to Sigma 70mm Macro? Also how good is autofocus on Sony 50mm while shooting macro video?
I'll just visit my money tree
how did you do that thumbnail tho
Lol I'd rather you cover more about the lens and make more good points rather than trying to make it to a 2 minute time limit.
does anyone know how exactly to take a picture like the one in the thumbnail?
Hey Peter, just wondering how you took the picture for the cover pic for this video. Love the videos btw!
I don't have the money of £400 for a macro lens. Lot of money just for a lens sadly
Can I say "Peter McKinnon" when my wife asks about the charge?
Disappointed when I came back and watched this again and heard 2 minute Tuesday. It's not like your new ones where they're actually 20 minutes. Damned timer.
dude.. i've never even saw a snow flake in person… we don't have winter in here… just diferent types of summer… it kinda feels like living inside a armpit
Tried to get one. Got scammed. Realized the 100mm "L" is NOT worth $800. Its ridiculous
Would you rate clip on smart phone macro lens
Back when it was 2 min tuesday lol
i love macro photography
I find that my camera picks one tiny point in the frame and the rest is fuzzy. What am I doing wrong?
Love it! Thank you. I live shooting tiny things close up. It’s fascinating! I no longer kill even the smallest of bugs, after I took a close up of of a teeny spider. The eyes were so amazing, cute, alive, I’ve not looked at a bug the same since.
This is what I’ve been looking for, what lens do I need for the photos I love to take. I’m a beginner to exchangeable lenses but I’ve worked hard to capture what a see with a Nikon coolpix point and shoot and have received compliments on my photos. Now I have a Sony kit lens and I’m lost, have no idea what I’m doing. I take landscapemostly combined with close ups. Open to suggestions. This may be all that’s i need for now. I’ll research Sonya macro lenses. Thank you!!
So with any DX camera (Nikon D5300), you have to 1.5x (times) the focal length???
You always rocked…How about Tamron SP 90mm 1:1 (F017) Model?
I'm thinking of getting a macro lens, but first I wanted to come here cause I'm like "Do I actually need one?" And after watching this video I know the answer is gonna be yes 😂😂
Would this work on a 80d??
Been one of my love aspects of togging for many years…
I don't wanna shoot bugs ugh hahaha hilarious
Hey Peter, i know this is an old video but.. I've just gotten an M50 mirrorless canon with an adapter… Whats the best affordable macro lens you would recommend?
That’s what my wife calls me – Two minute Tuesday. Actually, she calls me Two minute anyday.
After watching your video, I tried shooting a snowflake with a macro lens and she was triggered so hard, she screamed at me to get my f*** camera out of her face and something about me raping her with my lens and then she told me to go kiss Trump’s ass.
Can u make another video on product photography tutorial at a cheap budget…With love from India.. 😁😀
I need one like today!
But Peter what about people who are not photographers?Nah am just kidding
Ok i bough the lense what now? Do i need a camera to go with it? Or do i just use it like this?
I need some MACRO-RONI with cheese please!
I've learned so much from that rain b-roll.. ,🤣
I love macro but i try the cheap methods. It's not the greatest but that's what i can afford unfortunately
I own a Lumix G7 and One of the Len's I use is a 45-150mm Lens. Would this be considered a Macro Lens?
So peter let me ask you this; can a telephoto lens do the same job as a macro lens
just bought using your affiliate link 🙂 – thanks for the recommendation
Do you use normally manual or Auto focus for macro photography?
I love how these 2 minute Tuesday’s are not even 2 minutes
re: your bid, you say this "lens" but you don't mentions which lens if is…. sigh
you always have cut up knuckles.. i get the feeling you're an angry man that hits a lot of walls
Great guy Peter – thanks for video
Anybody knows the name of the song that starts at 2:31?
tnx peter for this video ❤️❤️
