Anyone can do macro or close-up photography, and my recent series of articles has covered three inexpensive ways to achieve macro results with your current DSLR camera and lens (using close-up lensesreverse rings, and extension tubes). In this fourth and final article, I offer a series of suggestions for macro and close-up photography that are applicable whether you use any of the three techniques above, a dedicated macro lens, or the macro (flower) setting on your point-and-shoot camera.  You can read my full guest post about Macro and Close-Up Photography Tips and Tricks on Photokonnexion.
