Tonight I tried technique that was new to me. Freelensing. (seriously google it... there is a ton of information out there.) basically you take the lens off the camera and hold it in front of where it normally goes. You can move the lens, tilt it, and shift it to get what you want. It also allows for crazy light leaks. I used my 50mm 1.8 lens.
Or you can turn it around and have a macro lens:
It does make taking a self portrait much much harder.....
I think this is a technique that I will be experimenting more with.
