Welcome to a new alternate-weekly post: A Year Ago on Boost Your Photography. Now that we have passed the one-year threshold, this series will provide a look back at the week that was (or weeks that were) for previous years of posts and information. This series will alternate on Mondays with another new addition: compilation posts of great photography resources and articles from around the web.
- Make the Shot: Close-up Eyeball. Our first 'how to' post provides step-by-step directions (and set up information) for taking a close-up or macro photograph of your own eyeball.
- Inexpensive Close-Up Photography: close-up lenses. An overview with links to the first of four guest posts on Photokonnexion about inexpensive macro and close-up photography. This one explains the benefits and how to use close-up lenses, which screw onto the front of your current lens like a filter.
- Inexpensive Close-Up Photography: reverse rings. This second guest post provides an explanation of how to use a reverse mount ring to turn a prime lens into a macro lens.
- Travel: What's Your Sign? Our first live post, this one provides ideas and inspiration for photographing signs when you travel.
