How to Produce a School Yearbook Cheaply Through Createspace « Writing Is Hard Work I just finished my fourteenth year of teaching English at the high school level and look forward to a fifteenth. I think back to when I started, and how I was roped in to teaching a yearbook class because I really needed the job and thought that if I took on some electives, it would go well toward keeping me on for at least three years until I earned tenure (back when tenure existed). Today I don’t teach yearbook. I’m too busy to do that. My career has taken more satisfying turns, but I remember how stressful yearbook could be.

Reverse Lens Macro - How to Make Macro Photos with "Backward Thinking" Occasionally a little “backward thinking” can be a good thing, especially when it comes to coming up with an economical way to do macro photography. Sure, you can shell out a few hundred dollars for a nice macro lens. You might give extension tubes or bellows a try, or even buy some closeup diopter lenses.

Might that not be a great and inexpensive way to explore the macro world? Great… now get ready to “think backwards.”
