Brussel Sprouts and Bacon:
1: Cut the brussel sprouts nicely.
2: Cook the bacon
3: Sautee the onions in the remaining bacon fat
4: Put the sprouts, the bacon, and the onions in a pan
5: Bake for 25 minutes at 450F
Step 1: Attach Macro Lens to Camera (100mm F/2.8 macro to Canon 60D in this case)
Step 2: Attach 50mm F/1.8 lens to front of macro lens in reverse using 52-58mm male-male coupler.
Step 3: Aim flash toward reflector (left or right side). Need oblique illumination.
Step 4: Set flash to full power, set camera to small aperture and max flash-sync shutter speed (F/22, 1/250s in this case). Lowest ISO possible given flash and aperture constraints.
Step 5: Take photo. Focusing will take some time. Depth of field is fractions of a millimeter while lens is wide-open. When aperture is stopped down, it will be slightly more.
Step 6: Enjoy!
