    I found out from Randy over at Holgamods.com that you can stack Holga lenses on top of each other to get a Macro type effect. So I tried it out today using my new Holga Lens mount from my 300D.

    It is a very cool effect and takes a lot of light and a tripod. These were all shot in the middle of the day using 2 or 3 lenses, and a lot of them are still a bit dark. You also get VERY shallow DOF.

    Yes, a bit dark and somewhat flat. But the butterfly image works. :thumbup:

    The raspberries do, too, actually. Not bad! :) I'd try it again, if you enjoyed doing it. I like the vignetting.
