    Gotta question - would the reverse mounting of my 60mm lens improve the DOF? The reason for asking is someone is selling the BR2A/BR3 on the BnS which spawned me to ponder on this question: BR2A/BR3

    No idea how it is used. But read from somewhere that reverse mounting a lens can increase DOF (correct?). I'd use it for indoor studio photography.
    So far all my shot using Macro 100mm lens with handheld (do not like to use tripod cause very troublesome). Using below DIY fill-flash..

    Hihi, i have both of this, basically it will worsen ur DOF, cut off light but enhance magnification. It will yearn remarkable results if u can nail the exposure with adequate lighting.

    DOF will become extremely thin and u need precise movements to get ur subject in focus..

    Only the reverse adapter is useful for u to reverse mount ur lens, the other is used so that it enable u to mount filters ..

    Example : http://macro-photography-blog.com/20...se-lens-macro/

    Nowadays If i really required very high magnification i will reverse a 50 with my 200mm f4 micro. u only require a reverse adapter to do that..

    Yup bro, ya rite, on the contrary it decrease dof..

    Bro, means nt straight on~ light can come in all directions..

    Using macro flash bracket to get closer to ur subject firing from the side.

    OR dedicated twin flash to fire from left, right, up, down (within the lens axis)

    Personal preference is Light up top left or right and side lit to minimise shadows..

    But its challenging and reap great satisfaction once u do that.. i still struggle at 3 : 1 and 2 : 1magnification..

    Look at works of our own macro guru Leong23.

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/yanleon...7604112511831/

    This is the kind of standard i look to achieve~

    Example of 4.2X magnification using Nikon

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/yanleon...7607876689434/

    This can be done with Raynox

    Bro, only the 2nd one considered.

    Ring flash has its limitation, throw too much light forward and flash compensaton goes as a whole, so hard to get the kind of results u want.

    Ideally wil be sth like this (which i use sometimes) but u need to improvise to get the results u want.
