  6. Neat idea. I enjoy macro photography and I like how the magnifying glass frames your subject. I’m going to have to try this. Great idea!

  7. Primitive version of a macro shot? Cool idea. I’m not sure how long I could look at it. It’s a bit of a strain on my eyes with all the out of focus portions.

    • Yep – the bokeh really stands out when it comprises so much of the visual field. I’ll probably try a smaller aperture the next time I shoot through a magnifying glass.
