How do you reverse the lens?
take it off, turn it around, hold it to the opening on the camera with your hand.. or buy a macro coupler to screw it into the front of the camera.. then its pretty much fixed focus and you have to move in and out to get the image in focus...
Shit. Gonna try this with my 50
does that work on most lenses?
stop it wayyy down
to like f/20 something, then hold the DOF preview button as you take the lens off and it will lock it at that aperture.. it will give you a much larger DOF.. otherwise you'll have like 1mm in focus lol... and use a flashlight to be able to see..
don't see why not... I dunno though.
Do you zoom in on your shots?
I was at 18mm... the wider angle you're at the closer up you have to get to focus... so that seems about right for a 50mm focal length...
Tried another with my 28-75
I'll try my 10-22
What's the benefit of reversing the lens? Sharper macro pics?
nice! im gonna have to give this a try when i get off work
I tried the 10-22 but the DOF is fuckin nuts, cant get anything in focus.
stop it way the hell down, to like f/30 or whatever, then you'll get a much larger DOF
the ability to macro period.. makes you able to get super close up... anything anyone wants to see at high magnification? i'll take requests
Nice texture and interesting compositions!
Thanks Welcome to OT
Once the lens is taken off the stop is 00
right, hold the DOF preview button before you take it off
that will stop it down to the selected aperture, then hit the lens release button and turn the lens and take it off while holding the DOF preview button, this will lock the aperture in place...
here's a couple more...
i never knew they actually had stamped lincoln into the image of the memorial on the back
the lack of detail makes it look like a guy facing the back of it with his pants down though LOL....
