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.

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

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

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.

Ganesh Chaturthi

Ganesh Chaturthi  is the celebration of Lord Ganesha  or the elephant headed god as he is popularly known throughout the world. Each year Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated with a lot of excitement and joy, but what exactly is Ganesh Chaturthi and what does it signify.
The hindu religion has been studied and interpreted by different people in different forms including the myriad rituals that are performed to the deities but the essence of all the interpretations is the same and leads one towards the supreme god.
Celebration of Ganesh Chaturthi is one such festival which reinforces the Advaita vedanta principle.Advaita (non dual in Sanskrit)refers to the identity of the true Self, Atmanwhich is pure consciousness and the highest reality,Brahman , which is also pure consciousness. Followers seek liberation from the birth circleby acquiring Vidya(knowledge) of the identity of Atman and Brahman. 
Lord Ganesha  is praised in the hymn composed by Adi shankaracharya as Ajam Nirvikalpam Niraakaarame…
