I just blew my mind: The evermacro device.

Over the past couple of days, I saw several videos on YouTube claiming that you can turn every lens into a macro lens with one simple piece of metal. And since I’m naturally curious and don’t believe everything I see or hear without a pinch of salt, I had to try that out my self.

How I edit my photos. (2019 edit.)

I really love photography. I’m not a huge fan of editing though. But since I’m shooting RAW, there’s pretty much no way around it. I’m using Lightroom Classic CC for that task, but most of the things I do should work in any other editing programme.
