Ever since this post I have been getting a lot of curious emails as to how to turn your 50mm into a macro lens, so I thought I'd do a bit of a "how to" post to show you how you can do it. It's such a fun way to reignite your passion for photography and is a great (and cheap) way to explore a new side of your photography. The results are always interesting - even if they're a little bit blurry :). Enjoy your new macro shots, my friends! Big hugs xoxo
