Strikes me as a lot of unnecessary work... both in mounting the modified 
lens to a bellows and taking >20 exposures at different focus distances. 
  With an unmodified 35mm lens you can get from 1.7 feet to infinity in 
4 exposures with focus at 2, 3, 6 and 12 feet.  You can even get 
slightly under 1 foot for the closest distance but you'd need at least 1 
more exposure and maybe 2.  Heck, with focus at 11.1 feet you can get 
from 5.6 feet to infinity in 1 shot.

20 exposures?  What are they doing.  Focusing on a fly on the front 
element with the background sharp and at infinity?
