Woman's face as she walks by

Whispering Wind.

The link above takes you to a short youtube video about a woman walking in and out of the camera’s view point. The feeling is mysterious as an unrecognized, out-of-focus subject becomes recognizable as quickly as she disappears. However the sound of lapping water on the shore of a beach and a soft guitar rift takes the edge out of the sequence. In the end one is left with nothing but a whisper of a unknown woman.

On the technical side this was shot with an manual focus 85mm Nikon lens set on a tripod and focused at approximately 24″. A Nikon D3 provided the power of a rapid motor drive and processing of the RAW digital files. It took many tries to come up with this particular sequence that in the end worked so well, though it’s still not perfect.
