    Won’t be attending but what macro lens do you reccommend for a Canon Mk2 on your online course? Canon 90 mm or Sigma 150mm or other lens… I need some advice. Also for getting low which tripod is best? Thanks mucho… Gary Shull

      Gary, any macro lens will work. I use a Tamron 90mm macro lens. The best tripod which has an articulating center post is the Vanguard Alta Pro 263 AT which only run $149 for the tripod. A ballhead is best and I use the Acratech Ultimate Ballhead which isd the best head for macro and runs about $299.
