Short Info

:bulletgreen: Joining is auto approved, everyone can join, even if you don't make macro photos or if you own a real macro lens!

:bulletblue: We only accept photos taken using the reverse lens technique!

:bulletyellow: Submit up to 4 photos a day, but make sure they are not of too low quality (but we will accept most, this is not an elite group!).

All photos must adhere to the general dA rules, photos with mature content are not allowed in this group.

:bulletred: Please talk about this group, make it a place people visit to look at our photos, make affiliate requests if you own a group.

:bulletpurple: Have fun!

Group Info

This is a group for all those people out there that use the reverse lens technique instead of a real macro lens.

If you don't know what the reverse(d) lens technique is, look at this tutorial and browse our gallery for some example photos.

The focus of this group is (of course...) macro photos, it doesn't matter what subjects are pictured in the photos, as long as the quality is acceptable (the standart is too high, but I won't accept really low quality photos) and it was created using the reverse lens technique.
I recommend that you give some information about the technique you used to create the photo in the photos description, since the EXIF-Data is incomplete when using the reversed lens.

I am sorry this occured, I did reset the members settings a couple days ago when MissV10 joined as Contributor and that must have reset all folder specific settings for all members. I fixed it now, hope it will work from now on...if not...drop me a note.
And thanks for the hint by the way! :D
