This is really hard to do ....
Well I think it is .... the ultimate selfie ...
Using Nikon Camera Control Pro 2, D800 tethered, live view on the commuter screen, trying to focus and shoot is tough.
I kept moving the wrong way ....
And slipping out of focus ....
And before some opthalmic person tells me the blood vessels are the result of drink .... this is without a drop of drink for a week ... and if you have an opinion about the state of my health as a result of looking into my eye ... then please keep it to yourself
This one and its matching twin on the right side of my head are allowed to look tired ... they have seen sixty-three years of use so far !!
Tubes used .... PN-11 plus 2 x PK-13 plus a PK-12 on the 105mm f2.5 ... cable attached to an SB-700 taken at f22, which meant lighting the eye with a cycle lamp at 3500 lumens ... (I know, I'll go blind, before anyone else tells me about the risks)
Anyway .... I had to experiment ...

I do actually recommend anyone to try this as an exercise. It tries your patience.
I guess it's much easier if someone else takes the picture ... but where's the fun in that ??
