This week the new theme of Weekly Photo Challenge is Blue.

I like the blue colour of the nature. So this time my entry for the blue theme is about the blue colour in nature and its gradation.

Macrophotography by Using A Magnifying Glass

Image


Few weeks ago one friend of mine at Kampretklik group suggested me to use a magnifying glass in order to produce macro images as one of his friend does it. The reason why he suggested me to use it instead of 50 mm lens, which I cannot afford it at the moment, is because I am keen to take pictures of small objects such as insects or something like that. It is pretty obvious that I cannot produce macro images with my Kodak Easy Share C713 for the objects that its dimension is about one cm or less.

So currently I am experimenting and still practicing to shoot macro images by combining my camera with my 60 mm and 5x of magnifying glass.

Here some of my results:

My macro using magnifying glass

Lotus corniculatus or Bird’s-foot-trefoil
