Some Challenges of using a Reverse Ring for Macro Photography:
As the lens connectors are not getting any input from the camera you face following challenges
- You can not control aperture so need to set it manually
- The Viewfinder goes blind and you need to use screen for
- Due to very high magnification, the depth of field is very narrow so one needs to work very carefully as slight movement changes the focus point
- Your lens innards are exposed to elements so one needs to be extra careful when clicking outside as the pins can gather dust and any splashes of water in the garden can damage the lens.

As you have seen if you want to experiment with Macro Photography, you need not begin with buying an expensive lens, you can begin with a cheap INR 199, reverse ring and start your experiments with macro photography. Just remember that you will be in full manual mode and you need to use live view of your camera as the viewfinder will not work.
