Traditional Costume Russian Doll

I'm super excited that Laowa have provided me with a pre-release version of their newly announced 100mm F/2.8 2X macro lens in Pentax K-Mount, for me to test out!


This doll was brought back from Russia by my now 91 year-old aunt in 2001, and recently gifted to me. Note that it is not, obviously, the type of Russian doll that is a doll within a doll within a doll and so on. It is approximately 32cm tall, so this was shot from 1-2m distance, kind of headshot range.


Pentax K-3 with Laowa 100mm F/2.8 Macro 2X and off-camera diffused Godox V850ii flash camera-right and a reflector camera-left. I am uploading this one in full resolution because the detail here is astounding. For this type of shot, this lens optically bests my D-FA 100mm F/2.8 WR Macro by quite a margin, provided you don't mind manual focus...
