    Nothing too amazing, but for a first try I was happy with what I got.

    It's quite simple if you have two lenses and the proper reversing ring.

    I actually didn't even have a reversing ring, I just taped the two lenses together with some masking tape.

    They have to be regular non-zoom lenses, right? I only have zoom lenses right now...
