The picture was shot with a tripod, in the center of the pupil you can see my camera on the tripod and my arm and hand pushing the trigger. ISO setting was Auto ISO with ISO max 200, aperture f8.0, shutter speed 1/8. Distance eye to camera was about 20 to 30 cm.

It is very difficult for me to focus manually on my own eye and I have no idea how to focus on the iris.

I Know! I don't think you can photograph your own eye and get results like those in the link you initially posted!

Saly,

I am afraid you are right, so I have to look for some "eye models", Dyane, would this be an idea ;-)?

Cheers,

Stefan

Try taking the shot of your eye using the self timer ......... could work better than you actually reaching to release the shutter, as no doubt you are moving a bit when the photo is recorded.

My eye model was in work today, but I was taking off to sleep as I had to be back in for the night shift. I wont be able to get anything til next week. Still, I may well give the "self eye portrait" a go hmmmmm. Keep trying Stefan. Have a good one - D

Iso: 80, shutter: 1/40, F 4,5, hand held, no self timer, Focus: Manual



Iso: 80, shutter: 1/30, F 6,3, hand held, no self timer, Focus: Manual

really well done, so is this your eye or did you have a model?? If this is your eye and you did this in only 70 shots, I'm well impressed.

Very impressive!

Did you used a close up lense or just the maco mode?
How far was the camera lense from the eye lense and how did you manually focused?

Keep on with this shots.

Cheers,

Stefan

Wow Rafal, so impressive! I never realized the eye looked like this. Yes, I also want to know how you did this!

It's my own eye, and its like 5mm away from the lens (I think), with a very bright light like 10 cm away. No extra things were used, only the fz35. Manual focus is a trail and error.

First pic was 70 shots, second was again something like that, added it later on but did not edit my text.
