I've been wanting to do that for quite sometime now. Hey bros, if you come across a thread detailing how to do it in pictures, can you please post a link here? Thanks. I mean how does it look like inverted, what's in between, etc...

Nothing's in between, my shots were all handheld. Sayang pag bumili pa ng reversal ring.

And there's a link in the first post. ;)
