Beercan plus cheap close-up filter
Jun 10, 2012

Now, I know these aren't going to win any awards, but I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out, given that this is my first attempt at any kind of macro photography. Also given that these were taken while putzing around my yard, with a 20+ year old lens I got for $150 from eBay, and a $25 set of filters from Amazon. Oh, and an off-camera flash (thank you Sony for doing high speed sync wirelessly with a base-model DSLR)

If it wasn't for this great forum (and the Adorama TV channel on YouTube. which I love ), I would have never known enough to even try something like this. I fear, however, that if I keep experimenting, there may be an expensive "real" macro lens in my future!
