How to Take Close-up Photos Without a Macro Lens

Here's a great tutorial on how to take close-up photos without a macro lens:



This is a handy tip if you wish to photograph closeup shots of jewelry, flowers, still life, art and craft, etc., and of any special features you wish to highlight, of items that you are selling online on Ebay, Etsy, etc. Any subject that is stationary would be ideal for this brilliant and inexpensive method.

Remember to select a good quality magnifying glass and keep it handy on your photo-shoot walkabouts in case you spot a beautiful bloom or wild life that is worth photographing. You never know just how magnificent your ladybird shots can be when captured with a good eye and steady hands, a passionate heart and a makeshift, macro lens!
