To make the image of the smashed Mountain Dew bottle, I used the lens pictured below.
I picked the lens up a few years ago at a store outside Chicago called American Science and Surplus. Like a lot of people, I’ve been going to that fun & eclectic store for many years.
When I saw the lens, I wanted it because I thought it looked cool, but it turned out that I could hold the lens in front of my 105mm macro lens and position it wherever I wanted to get the distortion that I liked. Later the Lensbaby made this process much easier.
