I miss my live-in-daughter-model. *sigh*

She would have helped me with this in a heartbeat... perhaps not so much of it... But... *rolleyes*

This was probably my most frustrating shoot ever. I should have put the model on a bed or something higher than the floor. *sigh* As it was, my arm was shaking from holding myself up so long, and I couldn't hold still enough for even this DOF... had the model click the remote shutter while I focused on holding the camera steady.

If I'd put her up higher, I could have used a tripod instead of handholding... and I could have had deeper DOF with all in focus.

Oh well... live and learn.

This was one of my top picks. Your description of the shoot makes me wonder why you didn't just put the camera on a couple of books or a bean bag?

I'd say it's the most elegant of the "Lego-Nudes".
