Lens play


This is a reverse lens photo.

I took the lens off of my camera and turned it around then got very close to this wasp or hornet, I don’t know which it is.  It never bothered me as I took quite a few shots. Below is a regular shot with the lens attached as it should be.

full-waspNext are free lens photos. Again I take the lens off of the camera but I don’t turn it around. I just hold it out a very slight bit and then tilt it either forwards or backwards, right or left hoping to find the sweet spot. It doesn’t always happen but I like the results even so. I usually don’t even know until I look at the photos on the computer screen.

So this one with the two dogs didn’t really work out but I still like it. The next few I consider a success!

These shots of the clouds are regular shots with the lens attached. Last night the clouds and sun were painting some of the most beautiful scenes ever!

So won’t you give the free lens and reverse lens a try? It’s great fun and you can’t really mess up. Sometimes the mess ups are nice as well. I had already heard about reverse lens photography but not free lens until I read the latest edition of Artful Blogging Magazine.

I just found a wonderful tutorial on how to free lens at the blog, A Beautiful Mess.

Everything you need to know! I will be reading it as well since the original information I read wasn’t very detailed. Sorry I tried to link to the magazine and blog but it is not working.

  1. You are so creative! Really! I hate to admit I only take pics with my cellphone these days. I used to have a camera years ago, but it’s gotten lost in the shuffle. I don’t think I could take the lens off anyway. Keep the images coming!
