Some of the best macro photographers in the world take the time to share their equipment choices and the techniques they use. I’ve attempted to gather some of these informational posts in the links below. The categories are imprecise, many articles share both equipment and techniques information. I have only used English-language blogs and websites in this selection, however, there are many websites that provide great advice in a variety of other languages. Of course, my selection is not complete (apologies to those I may have missed) and very bug-centered: if you know of other excellent macro photographers, in any genre, who share their techniques and equipment online (in any language), please provide a link to those pages in the comments.
