18-55 kit lense = super macro lense

I try a little experiment with a kit lense, canon EF-S 18-55.
If you reverse a lense you will have a super macro one, but the problem is if you have a big lense something like 55-200 or bigger the result will not be great, because, the little is focal lengh the bigger is magnification. So.. idea is to use a lens with a small focal lenght. Here is some results.

The big problem is... you can't fix the lens on your camera and you will can't control focus and aperture ( if your lens doesn't have manual setting for aperture). Soon I will show you another images with that idea!

As that you are into photography, I thought that you may be interested in a monthly blog posting that I started in July called "5 on the fifth" where you take 5 random photographs on the fifth of the month and post them to your own blog and then post a comment on MY blog with your name, location and link to your site - I then update my blog entry so the world has your link.


Here's a link to my blog

and a link to the last "5 on the fifth" entry

@ Teuton:
O sa scriu un articol in engleza despre treaba asta. Ideea e ca eu am tinut obiectivul cu mana ( oricum tinem o mana pe obiectiv nu?). Deci practic am intors obiectivul invers, l-am tinut cu mana si la capitolul focalizare.... te apropii si te departezi de subiect pana atingi claritatea.... asta e dezavantajul.

am inteles... am crezut ca ai facut vreo inginerie care sa-l tina acolo.
:D deh, am mintea prea odihnita :))
