My first attempt ever at 1:1 macro. Does anyone know how to change the aperture when doing a reverse lens?

That's a good first effort.

Now for your question. Is the reversed lens attached to the front of another lens? extension tubes? directly to camera?

Thanks

My 35mm RF is just reversed directly to camera with this $6 ring I ordered.

Hi, Nick.

Macro is fun, and it is interesting to experiment with a reversed lens.

I don't know what gear you have, but some folks find they can set the aperture of the lens, then hold down the DOF preview button, and then remove the lens from the body. That can preserve the aperture setting. Maybe that will work for you.

The key is to remove the lens while the camera is still on and while holding the DOF preview button. As soon as the camera is off or the button is released the blades pop back open. This is what I did back when I first got into macro!

I wonder how many channels this critter can pick up? :) I shot this moth horizontally but framed it for a vertical composition (I turned the shot 90 degrees in post). Easier than trying to hold the camera in portrait orientation.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (under 2x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT with a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe on the "A" head (the fill for this shot), E-TTL metering, -1/3 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. I'm holding on to the leaf with my left hand, and resting the lens on that same hand to keep the scene steady. This is the first image I've processed using Topaz Labs Detail AI and Adjust AI plugins.

In the highlands of Scotland, under trees it is dark even in summer. So once again a high ISO needed.

I have gone away from the 1:1 ration and trying 1:4 and then cropped.
So quite a bit of post processing to get rid of noise …. maybe a bit too much sharpening. What say you ?

Amazing pic and cool moth. Great lighting too.

Nice hoverfly, looking like a wasp mimic.

Great composition and detail! It is nice to see what micro 4/3 can do. Why 1:4 and cropping? Is this to gain working distance?

I have tried 1:1 but the DOF and focus is beyond me. The blighters keep moving and I cannot get the DOF I want in 1 shot so need to go for stacking. And since they move, stacking does not work well. I want to master 1:1 but feel if I can get 1:4, and have some semi usable images, I then move to 1:3,1:2 and then 1:1.

I haven't looked at this thread in a while - wow, you guys get some great shots.

Here's a fly sipping on some honey. (Although it almost looks like he's eating an egg.)

Yeah, it totally looks like an egg yolk. I don't suppose it finished it. :-) That is a very clear picture.
