Reverse Lens Photography

Take your lens off the camera. Turn it around. Hold it up to the body backwards, with the mount facing outwards. You can do fantastically close macro photography with it that way. But you have to watch out because the depth of field is terribly narrow, the slightest tremor in your hands can blur the image, and you lose all control of aperture and focus. But you can get really close.
