Outside your comfort zone
Challenge has finished
Your assignment: Take a photo of something you dislike, and try to see it in a different way. Or try something entirely new. Some examples: If you're a nature photog who doesn't do people photography, take a portrait. If you don't like cats, photograph one. Hate spiders? Well...if it's a phobia talk with your doctor before attempting to use them as a subject, and if they're poisonous steer clear, otherwise give it a try. ;) You get the idea. I hope.

One of the most irritating insects I must say!!!!! Little bloodsucking brats :p I have never really done a good insect macro till date. I decided to try something that I have never done and was scared to do too!!! I tried reversing my Canon 18-55mm kit lens using a reversal ring. I was initially apprehensive about exposing the rear portion of my lens, but after fitting it in reversed position and taking a few shots, I began to like the experience. It was difficult as focusing meant physically moving the camera and I had to work with a very narrow depth of field. My unsteady hands made working without IS more cumbersome :p But overall I guess this has been a pretty decent first effort!!! :)
