Pentax Kx Modified IR Helicon Focus experiment

I decided to try a different kind of subject for another Helicon Focus experiment. Done with a Kx modified to IR with a clear hot mirror, lens used is a 50/1.4 Super Tak @ f2.8 with a R72 filter. 8 different focus depths blended in Helicon Focus. It looks like I came close, but just missed the section between the two screws toward the back. I used Raw developer for the tiff output and R-L deconvolution in RD to sharpen. Converted to black and white in Nik silver Efex Pro. The gun is a 1880's S&W from the outlaw James McKinney.

The checkering on the grip seems a little indefinite to me. Too bad you couldn't add a tiny bit of additional cross-lighting to the S&W logo at the top of the grips

This was just a quick attempt right next to the window to see how it would turn out. Now I need to start a project and take it seriously. f 5 or 5.6, light it with reflectors, different angles, run down some .44 's etc...
