Chris wants to talk about macro lenses today. Designed to get really up close shots with very shallow depth of field, a Macro lens is a great way to get up close and personal. There are 50-100mm macro lenses, which are designed to get up close without being close. It's called the "flight distance." There's a macro lens on Kickstarter which is also a wide angle lens as well. It's called the Laowa 24mm F/14 probe lens, which lets you get super close without getting the camera in the way. But at $1400, it's a very specialized lens.

Don't forget our current assignment - "hat". Take a photo of, about or otherwise concerning the concept of "hat" and then post it to the Tech Guy Group on Flickr. Make sure to tag it with the word "hat" as well! And if Chris likes it, it could end up on next month's photo contest review segment!
