Macro photography has been an area of photography that I’ve always wanted to explore, but never really had the equipment (or patience) for. Luckily, things change. I happened upon a pretty decent little macro setup on eBay, and though it didn’t arrive in perfect condition (pretty much every element was damaged in some way), I’ve got it up and running. I’ll make time to write up a full review once I get everything in tip top shape (and have had time to figure out how to use it all).

Equipment, check. Patience? Well, that remains to be seen.

For now, here are a few samples. Just me monkeying around, really. Only the sundial shot below used flash (a hand-held SB-800, manual, cranked down to 1/128 power).
