Today was the first time I have ever tried the reverse lens method for macro photography.
I've seen people blog about it, but I was always too scared I would mess up my camera. I'm clumsy at times (probably more often than that) and I could just imagine dropping my lens or having some foreign object (or dust) fall into my camera thus ruining it forever! It could happen!
Today though, I squashed those fears and went for it. Here's what I got.
I'm pretty pleased with the results. I'm excited to get some more practice with it and I'll certainly be ordering a reverse ring camera mount so I can do this outside with insects (and whatever else catches my eye) when it warms up! I really don't think I could handle the stress of free lensing outdoors!
Also, I may not give up on Project Black and White after all! Kelly has inspired me to combine it with another project happening at Live Snap Love. The prompt this week is to photograph your child with his or her favorite treat. Whatever they like to eat or drink more than anything else. It should be fun!
