The 3rd photo... now that's a great shot! Way to capture the moment!
as for the gear, im using nikon D5000, 18-55mm reversed and a DIY diffuser.
all this photos are non-crop.
@sir Serdar. i posted some macro shots and as well as droplets. just browse the earlier posts.
You'd lose the autofocusing capabilities, etc.
1- is this 18-55 and is it known to give good results with this kind of reverse install. I mean can you do it to all lenses or some of them. As for physics should it be wide or normal lens so that the opposite of wide becomes macro.
2-what happens ifyou do it on 105 mm macro lens does it give the tele efect.
3- Isn't the back side of the lens vulnerable agains dirt and dust, also it is harder to clean compared to front side. How do you deal that matter.
4- as final, as you are using the front side of the lens to install on the camera, can you use filter before mounting that special reversed coupling piece. I mean like tele cameras as the use of drop in filters at the lens
Hahaha as a result asking permission to suck your knowledge on the subject I dont know.
Bigger is Better
1. im using my 18-55mm because its the only lens i dont use since buying the camera. a kit that came along with it. i think yes, there are other adapter(reversing ring that can accommodate different filter size.
2. if your have the 105mm macro lens dont bother with this set-up. i still wish i have a true macro lens. easier.
3. yes it is vulnerable but there are also filters that you can buy for the other end of the reverse lens set-up. i dont use it. im careful
4. you can attach a extension tube to couple with your reverse lens but its an overkill wit the magnification already. and i dont know any set-up that have a filter between the camera and the reversing ring.
i hope this answer you question.
as an example:
this is taken at almost 18mm

and this is at 45-50mm i think(guessing )

you can see the magnification of the 18-55mm. other macro lens can only go up to 1:1. it is fun to use this lens because its very challenging. you have to know all your set-up before you shoot and all the photo i shared are non-crop and handheld.
thank you for your valuable answer.
those photos are really good. Congratulations.
I believe they are better than a 105mm macro.
I asked what happens when reverse 105mm for not to try but understanding the physics of reversing.
As a result you have to use a wild-normal angle lens to give that macro effect when reversed,right.
