Macro photography with a reverse ring 50mm

I want to try out macro photography but do not have the budget for a dedicated macro lens. I tried out a technique where you reverse mount a 50mm prime lens to take close up shots of small objects.

it is a hard technique because you need to focus your subject by moving your camera back end forth. as well as getting a dark viewfinder image while taking the shot.

here are some photos using this technique

-Canon 7d
-50m f1.8 (locked to f11)
-reverse ring

-YN460 flash
