Damselfly Portrait (Two Photographs)

To view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com

Damselflies’ eyes are very hard to focus on, they are the circles with a line through them. The sparkles and other lights on the insect are fluorescing spots of dirt. While this can be fixed, it’s often a very difficult job to keep the texture and not create a portion of the face with a single colour with a lack of tonality. Sharpness is measured by whether you can see the beard. I shot this with a flash, the damselfly was backlit.
