Monday Morning Tip – 04/06/09

by on Apr.04, 2009, under Monday Morning Tips

Seems my best MMT topics come from readers’ questions. Last week’s MMT about creating a “poor man’s macro lens” created more questions. The most popular question was about the macro focusing rail I mentioned at the end of the article.

Today’s MMT covers macro focusing rails and how to use them. While they look deceptively simple, knowing how to use them ahead of time will make life a lot easier.  As always, the full MMT is located here. If you need a password, register for my MMTs to receive one via e-mail.

About 60 MMTs have now been uploaded as well as about 11 videos. Once all previous MMTs and videos are uploaded, I’ll be able to concentrate on producing more new material. In the meantime, keep sending those questions because they’re the best source of ideas for me.

    Lee – I’ve been getting your MMTs by email, and this is the first one I’ve hooked up to by RSS and My Yahoo. Clicking on the link in this 4/6/09 MMT summary to the full MMT is giving me a “cannot find site” error. Is the link broken or is there a step to get to the full MMT I’ve missed in setting up the RSS/Yahoo?

      Hi Jim,
      The reason it doesn’t work is because some numbskull named Lee didn’t check the URL before sending the previous e-mail. You can get to all the previous Monday Morning Tips at the Tips & News page on this site. Sorry for the confusion. Now that you have an RSS feed established, you’ll be notified every time I post on the main page. To access the new MMT, just go to Tips & News and use the password. Thanks for letting me know that I messed up the last e-mail.
