My first extreme macro headshot of a housefly.

Great stuff, ingenious stacking of old glass, I've been using a very old 1950's Jena Tessar 50mm with extension tubes and 2x adaptor with some fun results - nothing like this but I like the soft character of the rendering.

Are you focus stacking here too?
Bastetamon
Bastetamon August 11, 2018
yes, this is the only way ) Jena Tessar is a very good lens, I have a lens based on its mechanism, Industar-50-2, this lens is about 7-8 usd, but the results of usage are very cool.
