    would prefer to have both the star and figure to be in focus, cos they are relatived based on the title.

    anyway, good framing.

    my idea was that things are hard to attain because you can't see them clearly

    the star's oof cos its hard to attain

    anyway was a bit hard to get real DoF cos i was using a 50mm lens reversed mounted on a 100mm lens...

    first try using a technique i saw in a photo mag

    had a discussion here

    basically, i mounted the 100mm lens on the body, and reverse attached the 50mm on the fron of the 100mm lens ie front-to-front. the 50mm lens acts as a very high quality magnifier. drawback is that some lens combionations gives heavy vignetting, and working distances which are too small.

    oh, magnification factor if the focal length of the lens on the body divided bvy the focal length of the reversed lens

    Nice idea about inverting your lens and using it as macro, but then how do u attach the lenses together? screwing?
