The recipe is simple:

1. Place comb upright so that both sides are exposed.

2. Point a flashlight to spotlight the comb.

3. Place the phone camera on the other side of the comb and take a picture.

The iPhone's small lens confers a distorted, almost fisheye perspective to the scene, while backlighting from the flashlight reinforces the effect. The hardest part, true story, was retrieving the comb without getting stung.
