as far as achieving a clean beauty image, you have that one covered. The skin tones in particular look great. However, the one thing that keeps distracting me in this particular shot is the usage of depth of field with the particular angle of her face. The one eye and eyelash is completely sharp as a tack which you see in most beauty images, while the other is out of focus due to shooting at F1.4 or F2 range. For publication, that would kill the shot for me personally if I were the art director. If you look at other beauty images, everything is in focus tack sharp. This image could be an artistic decision, but otherwise, maybe stop down to F4 range and try for your next one. nice work on the details otherwise though. good luck
Thank you so much, and you are totally right!! When we were shooting, we were facing straight on. She turned her head and I kept snapping. When I got home I noticed the depth of field but her agency really needed some softer looking pictures of her so I went ahead with the edit. It's also a bad habit of mine to shoot at a shallow depth of field but I'm trying to be good with my more recent shoots. Again, thank you!
