By now, you might be thinking, wow, this is really all kind of make-shift. And certainly, compared to shooting with an actual macro lens, lens reversal can be a little cumbersome. But it's also a completely valid way to get great macro shots. I regularly see fantastic, professional quality images that were shot with a reversed lens. So if you're interested in macro photography but you don't want to spend for a macro lens, lens reversal really is a great way to get macro capability. Even if you have a macro lens, you might not always have it with you. But a reversal ring can fit in to any camera bag, meaning that you are always ready for macro shooting, should you stumble across good macro subject matter.

Whether you're using a real macro lens or a reversed lens, macro photography requires a tremendous amount of practice before you get regular proficiency. So get your lens mounted backwards and go find some tiny subjects.
