Macro photography in micro budget

It has been a long time since I have posted anything here. I don't want to make any promises by saying that I will be regular in my future blog posts because whenever i have said that have always ended up doing the exact opposite of it, anyway I have been wanting to share this post for quite some time now with you all. 

I do not own a high end dslr camera or other expensive macro lenses but have always been fascinated with macro photography and wanted to try out the same with whatever equipment I've had. so one fine afternoon ended up doing some experiment with my hand held magnifying lenses.


They might definitely not give you the professional results of the high end lenses but they definitely did not turn out bad either.  Please do let me know what you think of the results in the comments.

Equipment:
Camera: Lumix FZ 35
Tripod: A tripod
Hand held magnifying lens: 90mm

Experiment: Macro shots of oil in water
Equipment:
1) Glass bowl
2) Glass Table/ (rectangular/square) piece of glass

It’s said that we are all a reflection of god and that at the core we are…

Update

I had learnt the basics of Photoshop some 20 years back when it was still in a nascent stage in India. In fact Photoshop is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year since their release in the year 1990. I learnt it hoping to do some creative work but destiny had some other plans and I got into sales.

Twenty years later destiny gave me an opportunity to put to use those skills that were learnt. All thanks to Redbubble (RB) a creative community and marketplace on the world wide web. I have been a member with RB for the last 3 years. I had to brush up my skills by relearning and updating myself but its been great fun pushing pixels with my mouse for a change than pushing paint with my brush.
