most of these moment are not that soft....
EDIT: Technical Details
Due to the amazingly huge amount of interest in this photo [thanks, guys. lots. seriously. I don't quite understand it but I'm glad you liked this one] and the large amounts of questions on technical details, here they are:
Camera: Canon Powershot G1
Settings: Manual [A: 250 F: 2.0 (stopped down as far as it could go for optimum light and a very short depth of feild) ], Manual Focus as far in as I possibly could [macro], flash off
Filters: Peice of really super flimsy tissuepaper over the lens to act as a soft focus filter.
Post Exposure Treatment: Photoshop - minor levels and colors because I forgot to choose the proper 'white balance' and 'lighting' settings.
Model Info: It's me. I had lots and lots of eyeshadow [turquois blue and shiny purple] on my eyes which I then washed off and smeared down my face a bit. I wet down my face and hair and stood in front of a window with camera in hand to take the shot using the LCD screen to center myself and check focus/light before making the exposure.
Once again, thank you for the interest in this photo.
