Hi All,

Spend the day at the beach, love the reflection in the eye.

CC Welcome :)

hi Vissie. I like the concept, good idea. Beach image is framed nicely in the iris too.

Constructive points - firstly lose the watermark.

The beach scene needs to be sharper - if you post your camera settings we can see if your shutter was too slow or if your focus was off.

Not sure what your camera is - a higher ISO or slower shutter would allow for a narrower aperture, allowing us to see a bit more detail around the eye.

I imagine you tried to fill the frame with the eye - you may have gone closer than the MFD. Perhaps MF would've been better here.

Hi UKmitch86

Thank you for the feedback, must agree was hoping for a much sharper view of the beach in the eye, unfortunately my shaky hands and “restless model” did not help either.

Shooting with a Nikon D300s and was with a Macro lens. Definitely going to give this a go again but will take the tripod with me and maybe a head rest for the “model”

In this case the tripod won't make a difference. Your subject is a moving creature as is the reflection in the eye.

The only choice you've got is to quicken the shutter.

Also try AI servo mode - the camera's AF will track the object.

I wasn't clear before about MFD and manual focus - irrespective of whether you're in AF or MF mode, the MFD will be the same. However, if you find your depth of field is very shallow, or the camera AF isn't doing such a good job, change to manual focus and allow yourself to drift to and away from your subject to achieve focus.
