Yes, this is my eye. Yes, it hurts from this light. Yes, I shot 500 photos to get focus and framing right (shooting alone is hard when you're the subject, huh?). It turned out decently sharp after all, and I used just a kit lens! Edited to make veins more visible, 'graded' as I would with RAW video. I just love cinemascope. Couldn't get rid out of those nasty reflections of cheap china-made light ring, I even tried sticking bits of paper to it, but then I'd be lacking light. It isn't super bad. I think. Maybe?
