The Macro Experiment

Maybe some of you have heard about the quick, easy, and cheap macro lens fake. Basically take your lens off your camera, flip it around and put it up to your shutter as if you were going to take a picture of the inside of your camera. I had seen this before and even saw that they sell ring adapters to mount the lens this way to your camera. First thought: if it really only cost 7 bucks (cost of adapter) to get a macro lens why didn’t everyone do it. Well to be fair, I didn’t get the mount – but I did hold it up to the camera.

Below are a few pictures of a starfish I took. They’re okay but in my opinion not even close to what a real macro lens could deliver. I want this to work… I really do.

What do you guys think? Have any of you tried this?  If some of you have the lens mount and it makes the world of different please let me know.
