Very nice work!  Big fan. 

I lived in Russia for a few years.  Loved it!  I wasn't into Photography yet, but I'm doing lots of weddings now here in the US.

What city do you live in?

Also, what body to you shoot with?

The photo was made with a flipped lens, so I didn't have control over aperture. That's why I bought an extension tube recently to cover this type of shots  ;D

Can you explain this technique a little? I've never heard of "flipping" a lens before. I love the results! Great photo (and the non-macro ones a awesome as well).

Here's ste-by-step manual:
1. Take off the lens from your camera (wide angle works better, such as the 18-55);
2. Flip it around;
3. Hold it up to the camera and shoot  :)



Few hints:
- Autofocus won't work, you need to focus by camera movement;
- Aperture cannot be controlled; though I saw people removing the lens with camera turned on, so it has aperture value persistent (I don't recommend following their example);
- There are converters that can be attached to the front of the lens (filter mount) and EF mount from the other side;
- This trick is called super-macro, because focus plane is really close to your lens (you can identify the distance with your finger as a starting point).

Enjoy  ;)

Thanks! Though it kind of scares me to think of doing that. I can't imagine the dust-on-sensor issues. Great results though!

That's why I bought a reverse adapter  :)

yeah, you can deffo tell the difference between the 35mm and the 50mm now. I shoot mainly with my 50 and the compositions are a lot tighter like yours above. I'm getting the 35mm...
We (me and my wife) shoot close to the subjects because of the background that's too `busy` in the place we live in, which is the fastest shrinking city in the world. We made an attempt to go wider recently with 50L (I mean picture framing here), so I'll upload a shot or two next week.
Here's the shot:

Is it wide enough?  :)

It's 35L and 85L most of the time. 50L is new to me, but the results exceeded my expactations. Here what I get with the 50mm last week:


Beautiful pictures and something for me to aspire to.

Are you beginning to move towards using the 50mm 1.2 most of the time, or still focusing on using the 85mm and 35mm?

Thank you! Focal length depends on the compression I'd want to get. It's not something I decide beforehand  :)

If you want full control while reversing the lens you may have a look at http://www.novoflex.com/en/products/macro-accessories/reverse-adapter-eos-retro/. This provides full AF and aperture control. Just a "liitle" more expensive than your solution  ;) (299,- € + price for lens adapter).

BTW Great wedding photos!

a little note on reverse macro (flipping the lens)...

you can in fact have control of the aperture if you press the DOF Preview button while you unmount the lens. whatever aperture the lens was set to will lock in as you remove it. so you could stop down to say F5.6, press the DOF Preview button while releasing the lens, and gain some extra DOF for your reverse macro shots.
