These "Painted Eye" beauty photographs of Ashlyn, a fabulous model, were shot near Atlanta, GA in a private home.
The "Problem" for the top shot was the makeup artist only painted one eye, the thinking was that I would shoot close as to not show the other eye. In shooting I liked the depth when you could also see the other eye. So I had to copy the makeup from the model's left eye, reverse it, reduce the size, adjust the perspective, place it over the model's right eyebrow, blend it with the eye then blur it to match her right eye.
The "Problem" for the bottom shot was the very limited depth of field. Not fully trusting the auto focus, I turned the auto focus off then gently rocked closer to the model and back again all the while holding down the shutter release button shooting 5+ frames a second. This closer/farther movement was not more than 1 inch. It worked.
