About the image
This advertising Avant garde Beauty project was shot in a private home near Atlanta, GA. This was shot with a Macro lens. It is very close to the model's eye, say 3 inches away (76mm). The Depth of Field (how much is in focus) is very shallow so I used a 1000 watt halogen lamp with a softbox with a 1 quarter stop fabric screen to give me enough light to shoot indoors.
The Gear: Canon camera set to 1/80 second shutter speed using 640 ISO with a Canon 100mm f2.8 macro lens attached to a Sachtler fluid head sitting on a Gitzo CF tripod.
The Light: Daylight through a French door and for the extreme close up shots a Lowel 1000 watt light fixture inside a Chimera extra small softbox using a 1/4 stop white diffusion panel.
