    I have a question. I absolutely love this woman's work and would love to be able to take such beautiful photos, my question is, how do you get this sort of look? With the even soft lighting and stunning eyes?

    Shoot in the shade with really fast lenses, focus on the eyes, in post dodge, then high-pass sharpen the eyes - done.

    go out to 55mm, f/5.6, and fill the frame tight, focus on the eyes, dodge them in photoshop, then do a high-pass sharpen on them.

    Shooting RAW doesn't hurt either, you lose alot of detail in Nikon's Jpegs.

    I'm not a Nikon user myself, so it may be time to recommend the manual on this one. Also, if the image above isn't your own, you should only link to it - see the FAQ's if you're unsure on what's acceptable

    You really need to read your manual if you don't know how to shoot in manual modes. That is why you're using an SLR instead of point-and-shoot, right? control?
