Hi guys, I know i havn't posted anything for a while but i just got a reversing ring for macro photography (because I cant afford a dedicated macro lens) and have to show you guys the results.

I was amazed at how close I could get with my 50mm reversed!

So here are some comparisons:

Taken at the closest focusing distance with 50mm mounted normally:

Taken at the closest focusing distance @135mm:

Taken with reversed 50mm:

Here are some other shots I got with the reversed 50mm:

This is a great technique for getting into macro photography for cheap.

I have found a basic tutorial on flickr on the principles of lens reversing; i hope the author doesn't mind me linking it here.

Tutorial by Lara Jade.

You can buy lens reversing rings on eBay that are not that expensive.

*Word of caution you need a lens that manual focuses when it has no connection the camera.

I was going to do this technique unfortunately both Olympus kit lenses need to be connected to the camera to manual focus (think it’s called focus by wire?).
Also I found legacy lenses or lenses where you can change the aperture manually on the lens to work best.
