Let me introduce you to the wonderful world of freelensing. Freelensing is a technique where you hold the lens of your SLR loosely in front of the camera when taking a picture. The result? Selective focus and a dreamy look.
One of the great advantages of the macro lens is how you can manipulate focus. But that doesn't mean your target object always has to be in focus!

Learn the easy way to make huge, supersized negatives without any darkroom equipment! Think I'm kidding? Nope! This is a great summer activity that also helps to recycle old magazines.

From now on, you no longer have to guesstimate, but you can actually focus your image using your viewing lens! Read on and find out how.
Just last week I placed a bid on a lovely camera: a Pentax Auto 110. This small but very well built camera is the cutest and tiniest SLR I have ever seen. When I won the auction I started preparing for its arrival: buy some batteries, order some film, find a developing reel... And that's where I ran into trouble! As hard as I tried, I couldn't find a reel to develop 110 film, anywhere! So I had to pull up my sleeves and get dirty.
