This might not be the right section of this site but I hoped someone here could help or move it.
I am getting a lot more into searching for varieties but they are hard to see!  What do you use for magnification?  I see some of the pictures on here and they are so clear and magnified.  How do you do that (both for magnification and for taking pictures)?
Any advice you can provide would be appreciated.
Thank you,
Brett

What do you have now to take photos? How much do you want to spend?

Hi John1 - I haven't taken any photos yet. I tried doing it with an iphone but couldn't get it to focus. I have a DSLR camera but haven't tried it yet. What are most people using? Is it a special lens? Or taking pictures through a magnifier?

Clearly I have no idea what I'm doing.

Check out the photo section of the forum. Some members use a DSLR set up and some use USB microscopes and some just use a smart phone with and with out a clip on magnifier. Give it a bit and members with more camera know-how than me will help you.
