    Reversed Macro with Sigma 70-300 APO at 300mm w/ Macro enabled - 50mm f1.8 reversed on Sigma

    Manual mode, F25 (not 2.5), 3s exposure, ISO 200

    For perspective, here is the ladybug next to a pencil eraser

    And here was my ghetto setup (sorry for the camera phone pic)

    I really need to invest in a tripod now.

    Please let me know what you think of my first "real" attempt at reverse macro.

    Dead on the window sill in my office at work. There's a few of them laying around the office. Too bad I didn't have this setup when they were still red.
