M is for Macro Photography

Let's play another ABC on a beautiful Wednesday. My share today is one of my favorite subject in photography i.e. Macro Photography. As a hobbyist, buying a super macro lens is far from my real plan, maybe in my dreams I can buy one, I guess I need to sleep and start dreaming lol, because super macro lens is quite expensive and I can't afford it.

My husband wanted to shoot tiny subjects and since he too can't afford to buy the required lens, he made research and found that we can actually have DIY super macro lens. All we need to have is extension tube. In our case, we purchased 2 extension tubes and attached it with kit lens (18-55mm). Shoot the the subject in manual focus and viola we had this result. (This shot was posted on my Macro Monday entry last week check my photoblog.)
