Antonia

By StephenBrighton      
Over the years I have had the privilege, luck and opportunity to improve the quality of my cameras, lenses and lighting. Better still and much more importantly I have overcome my fear of being photographed and photographing others.

I have come to appreciate how important it is to be focussed on the person and not the camera, lens and lighting. They are mere tools with which we can develop muscle memory after enough practice.

It's ALWAYS the people who are magical.

I read and agree with the above statement Stephen. So as a 'Professional' photographer, are you happy with this image or do you feel it could be improved at all?
I'm only asking as I'm thinking now, of going pro myself! Smile

I can always see ways to "improve" a photograph Smile It's what the client loves that really matters.

That's what I find a little odd?
Call me old fashioned but I've never had a client ask me to produce an out of focus image for them.
Still, like you say, if that's what they wanted? Smile
