It is so simple, I can’t believe I did not think of it. One forum contributor suggested using a light stand tip as the focus point. So, I placed my stand in front of my chair and focused in on it. Then I carefully sat behind the stand so my left eye was directly behind its tip. I moved the stand (without moving my head, a little harder than it sounds) and pressed my remote shutter. Voila, tack sharp eyes.
I shudder to think what life would be without the web. Today’s little project is a result of researching on-line forums regarding how to actualize tack sharp eyes in a self-portrait.
