    Nope, 18-55mm regular kit lens reverse-mounted (so that I get a range of magnification from 1:1 at 55mm to 4:1 at 18mm), with SB900 off camera.

    Thanks for the compliments guys :)

    I should look into reversing a lens..You use Nikon right?What adapter did you get to reverse yours?I need some 1:1 over here!!

    Well that just goes to show you can get some great shots with the kit lens.... Nice job. I would be interested in learning about your adapter as well.

    I bought it for less than 30 bucks (can't remember exactly how much anymore).

    Very nice pictures, Draiman :)

    How do you control the aperture when reversing the lens? Does your kit-lens have an aperture ring, or are you forced to shoot stopped all the way down?

    What's the typical working distance with this setup?

    Nah, of course not. I just have to manually hold the aperture lever at the rear (now front) of the lens up or down. After a while you get the hang of it. I might want to get a cheap prime lens with an aperture ring sometime in the future though. Off the top of my head, working distance at 55mm is at least 10cm, I think a bit more. At 18mm (4:1 reproduction ratio), maybe 6cm? I'll have to check. Either way it works well for me, doesn't intimidate my photo subjects at all (typically small jumping spiders).

    Thanks for the kind words :)
