It’s New Year’s Eve and I spent it updating the Ockanickon webpage and avoiding cleaning. During the avoiding time I decided to try a trick I had heard where one could create a fake macro lens by cranking up the f-stop, triggering the aperture button on the lens while removing it and placing it backwards onto the body. It worked. I was in no way prepared for that.

Note that the depth of field is about a thick as a pubic hair.
Here’s a better example of the depth of field generated by this process (in this case, f/8.0ish)
That’s a Mana Drain I bought that had been lit on fire. More specifically, that’s the burnt edge.
I finished with an obligatory shot of a ballpoint pen tip.
If you go to the Flickr page and view the f-er full screen you can make out the lights I used to take the shot. These lights are also visible below:
I need to get a lightbox.
