Hi folks

This is my attempt to take a macro with inverse lens technique :)

Used my 105mm 2.5 as inverse with manual focus.
The interesting thing here is the shutter speed and a hand held shot, yes i've not used Tripod for this capture :)

See how solid hand i have... :D
lol ok kidding, i rested my hand on the lever of the tripod for a stable shot hehehe ;)

processed in Capture NX2, in orignal capture the BG was in pink color which i find bit distracting so converted it into grey :)

I liked the Vignetting/gredient effect on left top and bottom which i did not want to knock-off :)

This was a good experiance doing inverse-macro :)

Thanks for viewing have a good day :)

Hi Jahanzeib,
Definitely a good try to realize the reversed lens technique, the Manfrotto sign is pretty sharp. Perhaps you can try it with really tiny subject to see how detailed it can be... Good documentation of this photo equipment, by the way, nowdays I would like to buy a Manfrotto tripod. :) TFS!

The result is great and I agree with the grey color instead of pink. Very good details and good experiment.

well, i appreciate the attempt to mimic the macro look, its a great creative experiment :) but, you must shoot with a macro to realise just how much detail it packs :)

i enjoyed this one :)
