Macro photography–or, taking photos of things under high magnification–is really fun; the price off dedicated macro lenses, on the other hand, is not. Read on as we show you how to use low cost tricks and techniques to enjoy macrophotography on a budget.

Hmmm, I was expecting a tutorial on how to macro with the camera in your phone

If that's something you (or other readers) would be interested in, I'd definitely be able to write a guide on that. I've used my camera phone for macro photographs before. =)

Just started poking around HTG lately and saw this. I'd like to note with about a $30 telescope eyepiece you can get fairly decent macro shots on a camera phone. For example, this. Had I cleaned the container, used better lighting, and of course a better quality camera phone it would have been pretty good for not being a DSLR with a $100+ lens. It might be worth looking @MartyvH
Just remember you probably aren't going to get really good quality without a good camera and (semi)professional lens. For example: youtube.com/watch?v=DsGvT2DYJMc (Not allowed to post the third as a link)
