- Photograph eye reflections: [link]

Materials and Methods
Testing out the new Tamron 90mm macro lens. Glitter stuck onto my skin with sweat and water D: Sat facing away from a window with a heart wand very close to my eye for the best reflection. Probably should've widened aperture a bit so the heart could be in focus too but indoor lighting conditions made that seem impossible :shrug: oh well. Decreased red in color balancing to bring out blue hues of my eye. Minor noise removal due to ISO 320. See the original and how this photo was post edited on my Facebook: [link]

Additional Comments
90mm seems to be great for eye portraits since I can keep it on a tripod at armslength. This shot took more patience than I had. This was the best out of 100 or so shots. Not perfect but I was slowly getting sunburned sitting by the window D:

i love this so much as i love a lot of your work. i look up to you as a photographer especially because your work makes me happy and makes me believe in myself a little in my own work. i have a long way to go since im only 17 and when i sometimes think that its worthless to even try any more i look at your work and i know that i want to try and create beautiful pieces like you do. sorry if that sounds stalkerish but your work means a lot to me

:aww: Thanks so much Rachel

It's never too late or too early to start photography. If you have a vision, you just have to learn how to bring it to life.

I was 17...a few months now I feel old :lol:
