The Great Experiment

The other day, my coworker Eric showed me a video of how to take an incredibly detailed photo without owning an exceedingly expensive macro lens. At lunch today we took over the conference room and had a grand experiment. Using my lens, his nifty digital camera, several 'borrowed' desk lamps, and my collection of bugs and butterflies, we created the following photos.
