Eye Contact, closer.

2018, Favourite, Inspiration, Nikon, Nikon 58mm f/1.4G, Nikon D850, Portrait, Q&A, Teaching point, Within 200 feet of My House™

Technical:  f/1.4  |  1/800  |  ISO 800

I could have photographed this at ISO 200 if the shutter speed was set to 1/200 sec but I wanted to ensure maximal sharpness and introduce a little “grain” (in the form of noise) to make the look a little less clean.

Post-processing: Current experimentation “v. 2.02”.

  1. I seem to recall Robert Capa had something to say about the virtues of getting closer… Well anyway, closer is only one of the changes you made here and I really like them all. The first one is good, but for my money, this is even better.

    1. Thanks Greg. I oscillated between the two and ultimately decided to post both of them. As you point out, besides following Capa’s advice on this version, there are a few other differences too.
