Macro Photography on the Cheap...
I just recently learned of a way to shoot macro photographs w/out a macro lens!
If you have a SLR or DSLR camera and at least 2 lenses, you are set up for super macro photography!!!
Simply attach a lens to your camera normally (I used a 40-150mm lens) and then attach another lens to the front of that (I used a 14-45mm), so the front of each lens is facing each other. There are adaptors available for about $10 to do this, but I just used electrical tape and it seemed to work fine.
Here are a few shots I took using this technique:
