    Since Corry was asking for this for so long, I made a video for how to make a super macro with your camera and a SLR lens. If you haven't already seen, these take near microscopic pictures of everyday things.

    Like everyday table salt.

    Anyway, here's the tutorial.

    Will that method work with ANY SLR??? I have an old Canon AE-1 Program. And what exactly is a skylight filter? And how much do they run?

    It works on every camera as long as you have enough zoom to get through the reversed lens. I use the skylight because it only cost 5 bucks. You can get a coupler that has male threads on both sides so you don't have to use tape but they cost a bit more.

    Canon AE-1 Program...but I might have it figured out sorta...not a good solution, but I think it will work. I did what Garbz said in your guessing game thread in Themes...it seems to work, and I'm already addicted!
