pick it up and shoot.

f4 is fine, but feel free to use at f8. zoom in for dof while distancing yourself from the subject.

here is a processed image @70mm - full, then crop@100%

Great shot. I love the post on this. Unusual and different. Care to cue us in on the technique? It looks like more than pushing sliders.


thanks. while i did play with nik color efex for skin softening and nik sharperner selectively for full image, interestingly the tones were easily attainable (and aptly applicable) for this image using Topaz adjust->toned collection->colored selenium. Somehow the mood in this image comes right out with that color, even though the original oob jpg image is also very nice and looks more like this

you can thank the overcast sky for awesome diffused light and dramatic clouds

here is more if you like the series:
