Have you always yearned to take macro shots, but haven’t gotten around to buying one of those expensive macro lenses for your SLR? Well, the Reverse Lens Photos group has some astonishing examples of what you can achieve with even the most humble prime or kit lens from your camera-bag.

It you like to try it, the quick overview by LaraJade shows you how to work the technique. And if you still need more inspiration, check out our other "reverse macro" groups.
