This is my poor man's macro - the 50mm on backwards. My 8 month old daughter's eye - something about baby lashes and the simplicity and beauty really seems to have a special feeling. I had to get so close that there was a time when she actually ran into the lens. But there were no infants hurt during this photo shoot. I consider this a tough shot since she constantly moves and I was trying to use natural light and 200 iso while keeping the f1.4 for minimal dof ... Not much post-process - just sharpening and some tone adjustments in RAW conversion.
