Laura (#9) 5-30-12

A continuation of my eye focus woes: I photographed Laura with the 85mm f1.8 stopped down to f2.8. But again, that wasn't enough.

here are her eyes, admittedly upsampled a bit:

This slight turn of the head leads to the back (our right) eye soft. If I use the 50mm f1.4 at f2.8, I need to get closer to fill the frame with her head. But the closer proximity will still have the back eye soft. I suspect that the only answer is to step back and later crop to fill the frame. If so, more megapixels are in order.
