Thanks guys ! NMRecording..........This shot was taken with an old sears 50mm f1.7 reversed and stacked onto a 2X teleconverter. The 50mm is being held to the teleconverter with electrical tape. My focus distance with this set up is somewhere in the neighborhood of 4 to 6 inches.

Great shot, tough to get focus like this with reversed lens, very shallow dof.

ohh maybe im doing things wrong i assume. I was puttin 2 50 1.8's back to back and DOF was so razor thin and so close to glass it rendered it unusable. IE, I could only get one letter on the face of a penny to be in focus at once.

I will definitely try the TC

NMR, there are many combination of lenses you can use, each will have different caricaturists. Try just one 50mm reversed for starters. I have a Vivitar 2x TC that is somewhat hard to find, it's called the "macro focusing" teleconverter. Where most TC's don't have the capability to focus, this one does and it gives you a lot more versatility. The image quality is excellent on this model and also has the "A" setting so it will meter with your auto lenses too. If you can find one they well worth having but they aren't cheap. The one I got was $200 and I've seen them go for around $300 on ebay.
