sample image of freelensing or removing lens

the light bouncing around inside between lens and body/sensor creates some very unique effects

very interesting, i'd love to see a video demo of this, I'm not seeming to grasp the concept from the description

...it's like nailing JELL-O to a tree!

Here's a great article about freelensing: [content.photojojo.com]

I don't have a macro, so I'll sometimes use this technique

The sensor on modern digital cameras are very sensible,and may get damaged or become sorry,if exposés to duat.
Always be careful when loosen or removing lenses.
I have tried this à few Times',with an old traditional camera,without à lensbaby,i set the camera aperture to maximum (on that particular camera,it can be locked at full opening).
Them i used a sheath of black paper,with a small rectangular hole,and à glass from a pocket watch.
Of course,old film depending cameras,are not that sensible to dust,though the film might be damaged.
