I recently reviewed the Apexel 100mm macro phone lens kit and was surprised at how well it was able to capture minifig portraits with real bokeh. I thought the adapter design was great too, allowing easy installation and delivering a firm grip on a phone.

Apexel was kind enough to include a second copy to offer as the prize for this contest.

To enter, all you have to do is try out one or more tips shared by me, tongwars, or edgy_mando and post your phone photos of LEGO subjects on Reddit, Instagram, or Discord by June 2, 2024 at 22:00 CET.
