    SO i guess I may have a bug problem. I got my reverse ring in for my 50mm and started looking for bugs to photo in my house. I found plenty in my finished basement. My wife said she cant believe she has to compete with bugs now. I guess im going to have to buy an external flash now. These are my first pics of this sort. I used extension tubes as well.

    None of them are really in clear focus or sharp. Especially number 2. 3 is the best just because it's clearer than the rest and has some more detail. I say just keep practicing maybe get a macro lens if you really like this kind of shooting and have fun.

    Depth of field and light are the biggest problems with Macro, especially with tubes and lens reversal, stop down the lens (F8 F11 F16) and focus 1/3 in to the subject, use flash. H

    I am getting very interested in this type of photography real quick. What kind of lens would you reccomend for this for a Canon XS?

    Also, when I reverse my lens my F is F00. I can not manipulate the F stop at all when the lens is reversed. That is why I only have a small window of focus. How do I change the F when in reverse?
