Introduction: My Solution Regarding Max Aperture When Connecting a Lens on a Sony Alpha Camera With a Reverse Ring (mount)

Sorry for the bad English, it's not my first language and it was 04:00AM, so sleepy.

WARNING: WHATEVER I DID IN THIS VIDEO (Leaving the camera open and using a razor to carve) IS TOTALLY UNPROFESSIONAL AND NOT RECOMMENDED. IF YOU HAVE A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS, PLEASE DO.

Anyway, one problem I found when connecting my lens on the reverse ring is that the aperture is set to max which requires more light and doesn't give the picture I want (Close up with low aperture).

My solution is to use a spare lens back cap, carve the inside
 
and keep the latch that keeps the aperture open so when I screw it in, it opens up the aperture.

I'm sure I'm not the first neither the last one to come up with this solution, but I haven't done any research for it and came up with it while pooping after having a double cheeseburger (Sharing alot?)

Dear Loolykinns

Does you have that problem (no lens attached shutter is locked)
If you have this problem , try shooting using the manual mode (M ) on your camera mode.
