Hi All

New shot of Dani from a while back. I have been away building an new wibsite, then rebuilding it, and then rebuilding it again so it is about time I started taking some pictures again.

Thanks for looking and any C&C's are always appreciated.

Wonderfully intense stuff Matty, those eyes are mesmerising....the light and the control of the DOF is spot on and very cleverly done.....really technically bang on and does make me wonder how you did it with such a lovely shallow DOF.....but thats giving the game away eh? Superb tones, great light, gorgeous model and a lovely, simple a treat! Love it!

Thank you Jonny. She does have amazing intensity in her eyes. She was a complete novice, she won a competition to be the face of a local magazine and had never been on any kind of shoot before. Actually the DOF isn;t that shallow, but I ahve used a texture and I think that is what is giving it the depth

Ah yeah, you're right....looking at it more closely, its a nice effect....does make it look like things are out of focus, but actually, looking closely, its really not at all....clever stuff! Good one Matty, works a treat! And can see why she was picked for the competition too....she has a classically 60's model face, which is very much in vogue at the moment.....beautiful.....
