I was driving out this morning to run an errand, not intending to take any photos, no camera along with me. I then noticed that the golf course was white with dew in the early morning light and that the usual Texas wind had gone on holiday for a few minutes, at least. I thought of my new reversed lens mode of photography, so I turned my horse around and went back to put together a macro outfit.
The pictures you see pictured here were all taken mostly at the long end of the Nikon Series E 36 – 72mm lens, reversed on a Nikon D7100. You mostly think of reversed lenses as being used for insanely close work, but I found that backing up a little gave some nicely blurred backgrounds. This is all in-camera, no post-processing voodoo to get a painterly effect.
