    if you can remove the original lens from your camera then do it and put it back reversed (you'll have to hand hold it).

    if not, you'll have to get another lens and hold it reversed at the camera lens.

    zoom all the way in and move the camera forward and backward from the object to get the sweet spot.

    Unless you have another camera- how did you do it with an S5000? i guess you had to just hold another lens there?

    Oh man is this fun! I'm going to buy a reverse coupler for my len(s) so I don't have to use tape.

    It's insane, the depth of field is like a 16th of an inch or something outrageous. I found it extremely hard to use the tripod. Maybe I'll figure out an easier way.

    For most I used the colored flash -

    wow! ive never even heard ofthis technique. It sure sounds fun and those are some great photos. its cool how an ordinary object becomes a whole new thing like that. i have an old canon with 50mm lens and i also have a 28mm lens, would it work if I held the 28mm lens backwards to the 50mm? or should i just hold the 50mm to the camera body?

    Sk8man: First set I adore the one of the book page. I love the way it picked up the fibres.

    As for the second set you posted, I don't even want to think about what pic 2 might be. Ugh!!
