This is an image of my daughter and one of my personal favorites. It’s taken with a 85m lens at f1.8 with no PS adjustment other than curves for a contrast adjustment. I provide that disclaimer because the people who have seen the print, which is fabulous by the way, want to know if I can show them how to do that in PS. Of course it’s possible but I would argue that it really can’t be duplicated. Maybe it’s just my skills that prevent this in PS but I haven’t seen the effect done realistically. There is always that tale-tell sign that it’s been digitally done. The higher end digital cameras are much closer to film cameras in this regard. It’s much easier to control DOF with them than it is with the consumer digital cameras.
