I've got my eye on you!

Testing a home made macro kit on a one dollar bill.


I put together a reverse lens macro kit which consisted of:


Canon 28-90 Zoom Lens (From a film Rebel G EOS)

Canon Body Cap

55mm UV Filter


I cut out the center of the body cap, glued the 55mm Filter onto it, then screwed on the lens.


I'd actually just finished gluing the filter to the bodycap. As soon as it was dry, I looked for the first thing at hand to test it out and pulled a dollar bill out of my pocket.


The bill was not flat it was kinda wavy which is why the eye is in focus but the nose is blurred. At full size, you can see the fibers in the bill.


There is no aperture control, only shutter spped and the DOF is minuscule but the macros are extreme!! More pics to follow.


Thanks to my friend Matt for all the help.
