For Dave

Thank you Dave for the kind words!

The lens is a Tamron 28-75 F2.8 Di - I think it is a great lens for the money but I'd love to have the $1400 Nikon version - it's sharper at f2.8 - f4 than the Tamron.

For the first shot, it was a simple over/under setup. Photgenic monolight with a 24" parabolic reflector (aka beauty dish) as the main light (metered f8) and a second monolight at near floor level about 1 stop less than the main light with a small softbox as the light modifier.

The second shot was a large softbox as the main light modifier metered about f4.5. I had to drop down to f4.5 to get the supersaturated green onto the background paper.

No secret on getting sharp focus on the eyes other than I use the eyes as my focal point and recompose.
