Macro Meals

I was looking for a macro lens for my camera when I came across an article written by Stephen Elliot. In the article he shows how you can take a normal (18-55mm) wide-angle lens, reverse it and tape it back together. The method is called reverse lens macro and this is sort of what it looks like.

I was super curious to try this before I decide which macro lens to purchase. Here are the results:

1/12th Scale Miniature General Tso's Chicken

1/12th Scale Miniature  Chinese Dumplings / Potstickers

1/12th Scale Miniature Double Cheeseburger & Fries
Also, the pictures have tendency to turn out really dark, but I like them for my first try.

I've finished these a while ago, but just had the chance to photograph them.

 I'm still waking up from hibernation though, so I'll be moving slowly.

Wait, wait, what about the tutorials? I'll have a new tutorial up soon too!
