Ok, So if any of you had noticed, yes, I posted a "similar" thread to this one...however, it was in regards to a extension tube... my hubby secretly purchased me a new Nikon adapter ring ( BR-2A ) for mothers day ( keeping in mind he knows nothing about cameras himself.. lol, but he knows ive been interested in macro, so he was trying.lol) We've read around about using the reverse lens method, thought it sounded like a nice affordable way to get some decent macros. Got it, put it on.. "no lens attached" ..........turned off the AF, threw it into *M* Mode...problem solved. looked through the view finder, ( like looking into the black hole) nothing... went into the direct sunlight...got SUPER close to the subject ( any subject ) i was attempting to shoot....looked great through the viewfinder. .. got all excited for a second. Then...snapped the shot. Nothing. The image comes out Black. I tried, and tried messing with settings. ( also it wont let me change the F stop?) And everything i read on google suggested doing so... I only have the 2 lenses.. stated in my Sig. i tried it on my Kit lens... What am i doing wrong? Will it not work with these 2 lenses? ....maybe a waste of money? =/ Id like to get it up and working if possible, so any suggestions, or steps in the right directions would be awesome, id really appreciate it!
