    I really would like to know what kind of lighting you used for this photo.

Amazing emphasis on the eyes. I find the green leave background a little distructing, perhaps increase the dephth of field?

Love this photo particularly for the wonderful lighting technique.

Thanks Ann,

This was shot outside using a gold reflector. I used PS omni light filter to bring focus to the face and I also added just a touch of sharpening to the eyes.

This particular model has some of the best eyes I've ever shot.

Thanks for sharing your expertise with us Jeff. I forgot to mention how wonderful the catchlight on the eyes are. Yes, it always helps to have a great model to work with but it takes a good photographer to make the lighting work so well.
