The Portrait Project- The Eyes Have It


I tend to shoot wide open, after all if you have a fast lens use it right? so the edit process begins with the eyes. Lightroom enables you to preview shots at 1:1 so I move through the files using the arrow keys to move and the P key to "Pick". This flags the sharp files and gives me a group of pics to work with. With my bad eyesight its pleasing to note I can still nail about eighty percent of the pictures, manual focussing for me is still more accurate and easier to compose that auto so its important to focus, shoot, refocus and shoot again. I tend to shoot more frames but who cares? Its digital and you are only paying with time.
