I am more so amazed by Tom's ability to place/compose subjects..
So far I personally haven't been able to encounter a jumper who didn't scurry away in a flash at a sight of me..

Amazing shots and info in this thread. One thing I didn't see answered:

When shooting at >1x magnification, with the lens perhaps only an inch away from the subject, how do you keep it from running away?

I realize one can approach slowly, which is what I've tried to do (with limited success ) with my 105vr, but it seems that if I had to get much closer there would be no way. I'm just curious how you do it.

Anyway, again, great shots all!

Yeah, are there any tricks to this? Any suggestions?

New to this forum, but love me some Macro...

This time did a little "Free-Lensing, Reverse Macro" (holding the lens backwards in front of the lens mount, tilting slightly to achieve the desired focal plane).

This is maybe a 20% crop, I am about 3 inches away. Little guy flew into the shot.

The color/dots are about 1/16 of an inch below a clear acrylic coating. This is NOT a crop, the ball is about 1.25" in diameter...

What do you all think?

Hard to ignore an unanswered question!

I think you have a great subject, but one that has been obscured by the bright highlights far too much. I would like to see some further tries with more diffuse light sources, and perhaps a black background to pop the colours that little bit more.

Macros are expensive. How far do you think I can get with the reverse lens technique with my kit lens?

all you can do is give it a try , there going to be a large learning curve.

Since I have seen lenses in addition to the 50mm here, how about this?

My first focus stack! 7 images. Reversed Series E 28/2.8 @ f/5.6 in front of a PK13 (27.5mm) extension tube which yields a magnification of 2.6:1. This is a vertical crop of a horizontal image, about 30%

D7000

Daddy long legs... At its widest, the body is about 4mm across.

So the K tubes work on current DSLRs? Man, I wish I would have known that a while ago... I could have bought 4 sets of them for $50.

Great shot Peter.

Kevin,

they work, as in they "mount" - no aperture support nor any of the new-fangled electrical connections. You focus, you stop down, you shoot manual. The reason I bought my set \was the K1 ring, because you can use that with really wide lenses such as the 20mm - it is the thinnest ring around and many of the K ring sets are missing the K1. I paid $10 with leather pouch, but you see these offered at over $100 sometimes.

The overall set not long enough for my needs, so I may be looking for a few more extensions.

Thanks for the info. I am going to try and track down that guy that had the 4 sets. They were all complete. I want to get the rest of the PKs and the PN11.

More than likely it is a 52mm reversing ring. Personally, spend the extra bucks and pick up a Nikon BR2 reversing ring. Its a brass ring and the odds of it getting stuck because of thermal expansion is very slim compared to the aluminum ones you find on eBay. It is a work of art and built like a tank. Will last a couple lifetimes. Now, keep in mind that the G lenses do not have an aperture ring, so you will need to find some other way to work the aperture once the lens is reversed. You will need a Nikon "D" lens or older (that is if you wish to stick with Nikon).

I was told that if you set aperture with lens on properly and then reverse, it retains that setting, have not tried it though. I do have an older 50 mm as well.
