June 16 - Reverse Lens

I only recently discovered the reverse lens trick for ultra-cheap macro photography. My lens reversing ring ($12 from Amazon) came in today, so I immediately put it to the test. It's pretty tough getting things in focus, especially since you can only do so by moving closer to and farther away from the subject. Also, the magnification on my reversed 50mm lens is pretty severe. This flower is actually quite tiny.
