Help with filters

I've just bought some macro filters, do I need to set my camera on any special setting to use them?

Re: Help with filters

Not used them myself, but I think Foxesbrew has, so he might be able to advise.

Marcin has posted this excellent tutorial on Macro. You might find it useful.

Re: Help with filters

I think if you complete your camera gear in your profile with the list of what camera you are using and the makes of macro filters then someone will be able to better help you. So much can change simply through the equipment people are using.

Re: Help with filters

I've used macro filters and didn't set anything special on the camera as they just add another lens.

Have a play and see what you get but do read Marcins tutorial
