    Silly question, but I've only had one introductory class in Photography, what exactly is the difference between a telephoto lens and a macro lens?

    Cool photos, BTW!

    Macro will let you focus in almost as close as you want to the subject and still pick up every detail.

    Exactly. Macro lets you look at things that are very close, and telephoto lets you look at things that are very far away.

    Very nice Rebo's_Guitarist! Love the abstract qualities.
    What kind of lighting are you using there?

    So is it just a very wide angle lens? I always thought that wide angle lens would distort objects too much if they were close up.

    I used my mini led mag for the blue shades, otherwise I used some can lights with energy efficient floresents.

    I'm not great at explaining this sort of thing... but I've always just understood it as being a kind of lens that lets you focus on things that are much closer than a "normal" lens would. It magnifies the image, so that it's larger (1:1 or 2:1 and sometimes better) than it would be if you just used a telephoto lens. (There are also telephoto macro lenses though, that let you magnify something that's somewhat far away.)

    Cool idea using an LED as a spot! I'll have to try that some time.

    That has a very short focal length! Geez, I don't think I could use a lens that tight, my manual focusing skills aren't good enough and getting up that close I'd probably knock the subjects down. What lens/camera is it?
