    Get a Nikon BR-2A reversing ring. One side if it has a Nikon lens mount to attach to the camera and the other side has a 52mm thread that screws onto the front of the 50mm lens.

    don't bother with reversing the lens. get a good extension tube.

    Hold the bitch next to the camera backwards. Always works for me.
