Reverse Lens Photography

Reverse lens photography is a technique that allows you to achieve incredible magnification by using two regular lenses and a DSLR. Basically, a second lens, which is reversed and put in front of the lens on your camera, will magnify a small object beyond the range of either of your lenses individually.

This technique takes advantage of the way a lens is designed to focus a large scene onto a small sensor. It also takes advantage of the fact that a lens can focus light in both directions.

I know this technique, but i don´t like it. Too much problems with lens correction etc. Shooting with a good macro lens is very much better.
