Okay a bit of a strange image I’ll admit. I saw this shot in a photography magazine that subscribe to and I wanted to try it for myself. This is my 2nd attempt at this shot and it still didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to.
I even had the same lens as the photographer in the magazine. I used a Tamron Macro lens 90 mm F2.8 1:1. The photographer used a ring flash as I did and I got the same circle of light he did, but the fibers of the pupil did not look nearly as good as it did in the magazine.
I played with this image in Photoshop and Lightroom until I’m tired of it and this is as good as I my skill level will let me get it. Maybe I’ll try it again another time with another volunteer. 🙂
