The Digital Photo Guy

Monday Morning Tip – 3/30/09

by on Mar.29, 2009, under Articles, Monday Morning Tips

This is the first Monday Morning Tip to be published strictly via blog. I sent out my usual MMT e-mail but only included a short synopsis of today’s MMT. To read the full MMT, you are directed to the MMT page on the Tips & News page where you’ll need a password to access all the MMTs. Not all MMTs have been uploaded because it’s so labor intensive but, when I get them all uploaded, there should be over 80 short articles covering various aspects of digital photography.

Today’s MMT discusses how to make a “Poor Man’s Macro Lens” by connecting two inexpensive lenses in reverse. I cover the details including what lenses to use and how to connect them. There are also examples of macros created with this setup. In future MMTs, I’ll cover other low-cost ways to get into the exciting world of macro photography. I’ll also tell you which methods to avoid and why.

To get the password, you must be registered on this site. It’s also helpful to set up an RSS feed so you know as soon as I post new information. The easiest way to set up an RSS feed is to create a My Yahoo! or Google account and click on the RSS link on my home page. You can also use the RSS feed to collect information from other sites that offer RSS. The advantage to you is that you don’t have to check your favorite sites daily or hourly. Whenever new information is posted, you’ll be notified.
