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.
Next 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!
Below is an afternoon shot of a yummy cloud.
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.

The original was very very small and had a screen of some type over it. There were also brown spots in a few places at the top. I removed the brown spots and blended the screen as much as possible then slightly colorized some of the photo. This was one of just a few photos that someone had after a house fire. So it was great too be able to give her another one that was in better condition and one that she could actually see! It printed out best as a 4 x 6.
She danced and laughed all around the garden, all night long under the brilliant blue moonlight.

With all of this snow, ice and cold I think the birds would appreciate a little extra help. Besides it’s a great way to recycle scraps instead of throwing them in the trash. I took these oranges out and stuck them onto the bare branches of a shrub where the birds hang out. It looks kind of silly but oh well.
