Hi everyone!

I recently got into macro photography after seeing a russian photographer who made his own setup with a point-and-shoot camera and took beautiful photos of snowflakes.

I have been a professional photographer and videographer for over 10 years and this shows that you really never stop learning and picking up new techniques.

Here is one of my favourite shots and my blog post that outlines how I took the photos using a modified lens for my dslr, as well as all of my best shots with the setup!

Let me know what you think and feel free to share the beauty that is nature!

If you click the link below the photo it takes you to the blog which outlines the process which I use to shoot!

I use a Panasonic GH3 with a modified Canon EF lens I got from a thrift store!

Thanks for your kind words

Man,those are excellent photos.
What a great lens hack as well,I bet it would cost loads to by a macro of that quality.

Thanks a ton!

Yea to be honest it is on par with some of the higher end macro lenses I've used! I was taking it apart to clean and came across a guy who found out it made the lens magnify like crazy!

The other reason this works really well too is that my camera has a micro 4/3 sensor which magnifies the image by 2x compared to a 35mm sensor camera.

Hmmm I have a crappy old plastic 28mm-90mm kit lens I might have to try that on...

Is it the EF 28-90 f4-5.6? It should work perfect with that lens.

To remove the front glass you need to peel the circular label that has the lens info on it. It's a black ring around the front. Once you peel that up there will be 3 screws under it which you need to remove and the lens will pop right out!

I am pretty sure it is. Came as a kit lens with either the Rebel or the first Rebel digital, I don't remember which but it is a rather cheap lens. I will take a look when I get home and maybe attempt this.
