Re: Re: Taking pictures

I don't know if this will work with your digital camera, it would depend on 
the lens... But there is such a thing as a poor mans macro - its a set of 
filters you can put on your lens that allow closer and closer close-ups... 

A *good* photography shop would have them and they are far less than the $500 
a new macro lens would cost for my never-to-be-given-up SLR manual&auto 
camera... I would love a nice collection of lenses but can only afford so 

BTW, you digital camera afficiandos, can you take triple and quadruple 
exposures yet with those thing-ama-bobs? I have a really nice iris triple 
exposure pic around here somewhere I'll have to scan in and share...
