Reverse Lens Macro Photography

I really wanted to try my hand at macro photography a while ago but was really not too keen on buying a new lens.
This technique is something I came across last year and have had a lot of fun exploring. I use a reversing ring with my standard kit 18-55mm lens with Sony NEX 5K.

Here’s a small look into the technique:

These are some of my favourite shots that I’ve managed to capture over time using this technique. Note that I haven’t provided the EXIF because it isn’t stored with the photos since the lens contacts aren’t connected to the camera while clicking the photos.

 

I’ll keep adding new photographs that I manage to click using this technique here in the future.

Photography Intro

My journey as a photographer. I started with a Sony NEX 5K with an 18-55mm kit lens and a SLIK Compact II Tripod. After 2 years of learning on that, I recently added a Nikon D5100 with 18-105mm kit and prime 50mm f/1.8 lenses and a BENRO T880-EX Tripod.

I mainly like landscape and concert photography. I’m currently working on portrait and macro. I like to try out new techniques like light painting, reverse lens macro, astro-photography etc. and am on the constant lookout for inspiration. :)
