One of the responses I received to my posting of yesterday suggested I "crop" the image to above the knees. This is another photo I took yesterday with the difference being that I moved in closer to the Model at the same zoom factor.
I was shooting at 60mm on the lens (approx 90mm on a digital camera). F = 4.0 @ 1/80 Sec ISO 200. File format = Large/Fine JPEG. In camera sharpening and contrast set to one notch above default.
One of the responders made a comment about focus. I tend to make the model's eye that is closest to me the primary focus point. It was 5:30 PM when I was working with the model and I have a feeling since I was shooting at 1/80 of a second there may have been some small camera shake in play plus the fact the face is slightly blown out may contribute to the lack of sharpness.
Anyway, here is the photo, let me know what you think. C & C always welcome.
