It may work with a cheap point and shoot or a cellphone, but I'd hate to see the damage if one tried that with a large DSLR.

And I am totally agree with the 5th one! Its really better to delete tourists from travel photos.

Good find, Johanna! I definitely plan to try some...though think I'll pass on using the top of a lamp as an ersatz tripod :-)

Damn, 5 is a neat trick as opposed to manually blending, too bad I only have CS5.

I have done a variation on 4 whenever I want to try a macro, since I don't have a macro lens. I hold my 50mm, reversed, in front of my 28-135 which is mounted on the camera. At least this way I don't have to worry about the inside of the camera being exposed, especially if I am outside. Much safer, I think. The zoom is at 28mm.

That's how I shot this.

Thank you for that! I really wouldn't even want to try having my camera lensless whilst shooting.

You're welcome. You can also slip a piece of paper with a hole in it between the lens surface and the 50, to avoid any direct contact with the lens. Probably won't scratch it anyway, but it's a little added insurance...or a UV filter.

Good tips!

amazing tricks!

I have used #4 myself, couple of times. I eve got myself a reversing ring (f-mount on one side, 52mm filter thread on the other) so no more freelensing.
