This shot took a while to get, and I think I was half blinded in the process. I was borrowing my father’s nice macro lens, and decided I wanted to get a picture of my eye in the sunshine. I turned on my Nikon d90’s live view and set up a mirror in front of my window, and spent what seemed like FOREVER moving the camera/twisting the lens to get it in focus. While I was getting the camera in focus my eye stayed in the bright sunlight, because I wanted it to be a natural lighting shot because that’s when my eyes look the best. So all in all I’m happy I did this, but it was kind of a pain in my rear.
This picture was slightly inspired by The Who, Behind These Blue Eyes
While listening to this song I decided to take the pictures of my eyes.
