The Charm Bracelet

Get Pushed Challenge #305
My get pushed partner challenged me to take a photo using reverse lens macro. My biggest problem was subject, then lighting. So here is my charm bracelet in bits and pieces. I presented this in collage format to give some idea of the size of the charms.

Great shots of your charms. I love looking at the various ones you had. I had never heard of Lenoir-Rhyne before, so I just went out on their web site and read a bit of the history. Interesting!

I'm not sure what reverse lens macro is, but the collage is great. The charms are really interesting too. You've done an excellent job with your challenge!

@fbailey I enjoyed this challenge. I had tried this technique in the past without any success. Seems things went a bit better this time. Thank you for the push.

Kathy, this is lovely, worked very well, and the idea of making a collage is doubly effective. So pleased you enjoyed it :)

@mcsiegle Thank you Mary. Yes I graduated from an old Lutheran college (which I know you saw is now a university) and was capped (I went to nursing school) in an Episcopal Church and graduated (new cap and engraved cross (instead of a pin)) in a Baptist Church. An ecumenical event.
@olivetreeann Thank you Ann. I took the kit lens and held to the camera body backwards so the front was in the hole where the lens should have screwed in. There are actual rings to use to reverse the lens, but I don't really intend to use this technique often enough to spend the $.
@tosee Thanks Tom. As I said to Felicity, I've tried this before but couldn't seem to find the focus. I found it this time. Much different than using a macro lens or extension tubes.
@fbailey Thank you.
@novab Thank you Nova.
@craftymeg I appreciate your comments Margaret.
@pyrrhula Thank you Ferry.

Reverse free lensing... impressive result given the imprecisions of this practice.

@homeschoolmom Thank you Lisa
@vignouse Thank you Richard. I think I might have mentioned that I have tried this before with abysmal results. One thing that helped me this time is that the kit lens reversed fit perfectly in the opening and therefore was easier to hold still.
