Nikon or Canon or others?

Nikkor 50mm has aperture ring which you can use to open up the aperture.

I use my 50mm with two +2 close-up filters stacked. Gives relatively gd close-ups (approx. 1:2), but pic quality becomes a tad soft.

He seems to be a Nikon user.

So if you're using the 50mm f1.8, there is a aperture ring. Unlock it by lifting up the catch and turn the aperture down to f22.s

If you have any DIY abilities, you could do something like I did. Regardless of brand, it should work if you get the proper extension tubes. I can reverse any lens and have full control of the lens.

Have a look to get some ideas.
