You don't necessarily need a macro lens to do macro photography. By mounting a prime lens "backward"-with the front elements closest to the imaging sens-you can turn it into a low-cost macro lens. All you need is an inexpensive adapter called a reversal ring. A sense of adventure helps, too, because your camera's nmal metering and focusing features don't wk when the lens is attached backward.
In this course, photographer Ben Long details the tools and techniques of lens-reversal macro photography. After investigating reversal ring options, the course exples the focusing and exposure techniques involved when shooting with a reversed lens.
