I scheduled a model shoot this past weekend while I was out of town visiting my family. The model flaked, but my cousin Gina said that she would let me photograph her.

So here is my cousin Gina.

I think that I have finally started to grasp selective focusing and apeture values....geez, it took me long enough!!!!

Bet your NO-SHOW model wasn`t any better looking than this fine lady. Whatever method you used for this photo makes her even more pleasant to view

Oh this is lovely, the light on the young lady's face and hair is perfect and your selective focusing here certainly enhances the image. Angi

Very well composed with the dof and Gina is lovely. Ask her if she wants to stay on as your model permanently! Just curious, did you use all manual settings or go with aperture priority?

Thanks all! And thanks Pete for the HC! Smile

Hi George, I went for apeture priority @ f1.8 and manually set the focus point.
