The first one was with use either a magnifying glass, or a magnifying sheet. Either option will give you a cool way of doing macro photography. The magnifying sheet can also be used for doing "warp perspective" by putting the sheet in front of the lense and bending it for different effects.
Next Julie-Ann gave us a demonstration on lens whacking or free lensing. Also another method called reverse lens macro. This when we remove the lens on our DSLR camera and turn it around for a very shallow depth of field and a macro effect.
