Betty over at posted on Tuesday about taking macro photos by turning your lens around and holding it in place over your camera. This gives you an aperture of 0 and you just have to set shutterspeed to get the correct exposure and move the camera forward or backward for focus. I decided to play with this today and see what it did. It was fun and definitely interesting. The first 3 shots were taken in this manner and the fourth shot is a full shot of the other 3 taken normally. This is part of a playplace at a McDonald's.

macro shots: ISO 400, ss 1/40, f 0.0, using a 50mm lens backwards
last shot: ISO 400, ss 1/30, f 2.2, 50mm lens
