About the Video

This advertising Beauty project was shot in a private home near Atlanta, GA. The hard part was getting the light as close to the model as we could without having the light so bright she could not keep her eyes open. The problem is when shooting really close (The extreme close up of the eye) the depth of field (How much is in focus) all but disappears One way to solve this problem is to have a LOT of light. Not a real problem when shooting strobe, but a real issue when using continuous light, like in video.
