I have stated before that I have very little interest in Macro Photography. That being said I repeat something that Rich Legg (link) said at my first Photowalkingutah.com event. “All things in photography are connected. If you learn something in one aspect you can apply it to something else.” My friend Mike (no link yet 😀 )just bought a little $10 reversal ring (link) that turns your regular lenses into a macro lens, and he let me try it out. I was fairly impressed; it’s not a 105mm, but it was $10!
This picture was made with the reversal ring on my 55-200mm. We had to lower the screen of the the laptop and use a piece of paper for a bounce card for the speed-light in the hot shoe. The other WWMD piece of this picture was using the mug I have for my Moutain Dew as a “tripod”. Oddly, this is a full color picture, but the keyboard is a metallic silver and appears to be B&W.
Kind of a fun picture. I might have to try some more 🙂
