How to - Extreme Macro

etting into the world of macro photography may be easier than you think.  You can use the kit lens that came with your camera and a 50mm lens.  Both Canon and Nikon have a 1.8 version for right around $100 and most people have one of these in their bags anyway.

The best way is to get a reversing ring that has male threads on both sides to "marry" your lenses together.  You can also hand hold the fronts together.  Put your camera/lens in manual focus mode and set the aperture of your 50mm to 1.8.  The depth of field will be very shallow as you move in and out and a speedlight or flash will help with the keeper ratio.

If you have further questions, this video tutorial my help.
