Affordable macro photos:

buying a macro lens is expensive and, unless you decide to dedicate yourself to photograph the micro world, it is of very little use. However we would like to take a really close-up picture and it's the moment you miss having that lens. Well, I discovered that you can make macro photos expending as little as $3.00. How? Buy an reverse ring adapter for your regular lenses (50mm or zoom).

The Reverse Ring Adapter works by mounting your lens in reverse through the filter threading in turn reversing the focal plane and giving you a macro range in focus allowing you to take those stunning and incredible Macro Photos.
Although the lens will fit physically, automatic diaphragm, auto-focusing, or any other functions will not operate correctly while using this adapter. "Stop-down mode" will need to be used when metering since the lens does not have the ability to have its aperture controlled by the camera body. You can shoot with manual mode or aperture priority mode. This Adapter allows for infinity focusing.

Here is a picture of one:


Some times we take pictures that are beyond technicalities, they are just interesting, pleasant, or simply cute. I took related subject special photos and gathered them in movies. They became a series named "Things we see" and below you can watch them*. Hope you enjoy.
