bobby pin

Step 2:

now take the pin and bend into a L shape(see picture)

next bend top of L down so it looks like a sideways T

Step 3:

take the pliers and bend the bottom until it breaks off

Step 4:

finally use the pliers to squish little plastic ball off and bend back the tip making sure that it is flat.

    This tip for anyone who doesn't have any camera available except the one provided on cell phones (fixed focus lens). Get some reading glasses of +1.25 to +2.00 diopter. Experiment with focus distance when holding the lens over the camera lens. Stay at this distance for macro work. Also, support the holding hand with stacked books or other objects to minimize camera movement during the exposure.
