Reversing your Prime 50mm Lens

I have found a fun way to use a 50mm prime lens on my 40D.

Remove the lens from the camera and reverse it. Here’s a helpful tutorial that I found today on the net which may help. I didn’t use a reverse ring, but it worked out just the same.

A word of caution though, be very conscious that you are removing the lens and may expose your camera insides to dust etc so don’t leave the camera lying around without a cap.

Here are some of the images that I have taken.

This one could have been sharper but I rather liked the softness combined with the DoF.

Give it a go, it’s a great way to expand your existing equipment momentarily without the expense of a new lens.
