Freelensing

So I just read this thread over on CM about freelensing, and I HAD to try it! Uh, I think I may be hooked! It's going to take a bit of practice, but I love the effect!

Just some test shots with some bananas:

That's interesting... I've always wondered whether you could really take pictures this way, but didn't know that people actually did it! So interesting to read about it and see some results. I've got to give it a try!

It was pretty easy on my camera, but I read that some were having troubles. Wondering if the newer cameras have features that prevent you from doing it? Mine is a pretty old model.

Scared to do this Smile just don't want to get stuff dirty.

Yes, there's definitely that chance of dust getting inside. I kept the lens pretty close to the camera for these. Not sure if I'm going to try outdoors or not. Maybe on a day there's no wind at all Wink
