I should have known better and shot at f/4 at this close distance. The intense specular highlights also create the appearance of softness. It is too rare that she will let me shoot her theses days, I really needed to take better advantage of it. There is always Christmas. Thanks for the comments.Pete Lethbridge said:Chad, a very pretty young lady and nice relaxed shots. I think the first image suffer a little bit of too shallow a DOF and the eye to the left is a little out of focus.
Thanks Gordon, and thanks everyone for the kind responses - this place is great.greyflash said:Hi Chad, nice images of your beautiful daughter. She takes after your wife. My favorite is #1 and I don't mind the shallow DOF at all. It is a pensive moment that you have captured well and of course you think she is adorable, she is!
