macro photography...

Been spending some time playing with macro photography around the house. It's been especially interesting to me since many things which I don't really notice catch a lot more attention when you're looking at them up (really) close.

Was able to do it on the cheap -- combined Nikon BR3 and BR2A adapters, allowing for mounting a cheap 50mm lense backwards. Gives an effective 1:1 focal length to the CCD size for about $20. That said, it also removes all focusing from the lense, so I end up moving the camera closer / further from the subject to get focus.

Fun stuff, especially for low $$.
