Using my 17-85mm lens I focused on an image through a 50mm lens.

A bit more experimenting today.

    LOVE This! I often look through my lenses when I am cleaning them, but never think to look through with my off my camera and photograph the results!! >.< DOH! (If that all makes sense. LOL) You’re so clever.
    I did do some reverse 50mm lens shots, though. It was great fun. I will upload one or two soon! Thanks for the inspiration!! :D

  • Yes, it’s funny the things that we overlook.

    Oh, wow…I’m really looking forward to seeing the results of the reversed lens techique…quick get them up!

    Was just about to log off when I spotted this….. you clever thing!! very cool, it looks beautiful…..
    I reversed my 50mm today & took a shot of my TV remote ….boring maybe, but it was there & I was curious. It’s great!! Could be a little addictive :))

  • I’ve taken another one of these tonight…looks good also.

    Now I must see this reversed lens shot…it sure can be addictive. Just look around the house…you’ll find so many things to shoot.
