Nice work! I tried freelensing and quickly realized I need a small! light lens to handle it easier. I shouldn't have sold my 50 f1.4 manual lens!

If you are using a Nikon body then a Nikkor 50/1.4 is not what you want. Any Nikon lens with a Nikon body gives very very little tilt ability. A Nikon lens on a Canon body is better if you don't mind lowering your standards and using a Canon!

The better option is using medium format camea lense where you are able to hold a lens as muc as a few inches in front with ease.

I will explain more on the on a follow up blog post
