#MacroPhotography - Five frames, reverse ring analog macro setup with a Super-Takumar 55mm F1.8 mounted on an Olympus OM-2S.

A belated post. My first try at doing reverse ring macro photography on film, after having done the same with the Super-Takumar 55mm F1.8 reverse mounted on the Olympus Pen E-P5 earlier on. For the session I had the lens reverse mounted on the Olympus OM-2S instead.

This setup was simpler as all you need is the reverse ring adapter, which now attaches straight to the lens mount of the OM body, and the lens reverse screwed to it. Color characteristics of the images were quite similar with both setups, with magnification half to that of the digital capture.

As can be seen from the images, a fair amount of shoddy work is apparent with the handling of the film negative strip during development and subsequent scanning session, which, of course, could have been better.
