I was chatting with my friend and photographer extraordinaire about lenses and that I want a macro lens. She told me of the cool trick to try out. Take off your lens and hold it backwards onto your camera, you won't be able to focus automatically but move the camera until you are in focus. I was using my 50mm lens and this is what happened. I wouldn't be able to get this close using the lens the manufactured way. Awesome.
