Macro Photography with Mobile Phone [Tutorial+Pictures]

Macro with mobile phone [malaysia local moss]
 Much blogger has been written on the topic of Macro photography for those photographers fortunate enough to own a DSLR with macro lenses – but what about if you do not own a compact point and shoot camera? Can you get great macro shots too? here i will tell you how it done.

1. Get lens from your old DVD player or DVD drive

First thing is to get a lens for your camera phone. Make sure your old DVD player/drive is not connected to power. Then take the screws off. This is a great way to void your warranty. It is also dangerous and you should really never do this.
Anyhow, if you went against my advice, you'll find the lens under the place where the disk goes. Take it out.

2. Prepare A Lens Mount

Ok, I'm only kidding on this one. You don't really need a lens mount, you can use duct tape if you wanna go really ghetto or mount it on some cardboard.
If you opt for the cardboard option, just make a round hole in the cardboard.

3. Mount Your Lens

Just use some duct tape (as indicated before) to mount your lens directly, use or blue Tack to hold the card mount.
