I’ve been obsessed with macro photography since first discovering it in my young teen years. I couldn’t afford a proper macro lens for a really long time, and I couldn’t justify the expense over some other, more practical (for me) equipment.

I recently covered the topic of freelensing, and wanted to expand on that to get a little more macro.
