    Thats the "cool" thing about photography- something may not seem "cool" until you get it on camera. Take your camera everywhere! even into the grocery store! That's definitely a good place to get some shots of some crazy stuff, like steaks, and lobsters, and cabbage

    Nice pics guys. The only nice camera I have is an ancient Canon AE-1. Takes nice pictures but it needs repair right now. I think I'll have to get it fixed now so I can take some nice pictures again.

    did you really just ask if Bo has his cwp?

    he shot his name into the application form from 1000 yards... while on a Segway... One handed with his USP in .45ACP... While doing pushups AND eating his sandwich...

    At first, I just taped the eyepiece (its 28mm, by the way) to the end of the lens barrel. It worked OK, but it was dangerous, because if the camera turned off and retracted, the tape would have seriously fucked the camera up. So I dug around in my closet and found my Legos to build a little enclosure:



    Note for anyone who wants to try this: The depth of field this creates is TINY. Seems like less than 1mm, which makes finding and focusing on your subject VERY hard. The subject or camera has to be moved to get it into focus, because using the camera's normal focus does nothing. Using a remote or your camera's delayed mode is a must. The slightest jiggle will make the camera lose focus, so you may have to quickly fix it while the timer counts down. Youll also want to use a 1 or so second shutter time and lots of light

    Also just to show you guys the scale of the stuff I posted, heres pictures of the pin and inkjet cartridge I used, the circled parts are areas of the super macro pics



    (thats my index finger thar)

    You can also get super macro shots by holding the lens backwards to the camera. It's tricky but displays the same results.
