Taking this series of portraits called for precision work from both model and photographer. Here Iris is showing a most peculiar effect of the magnifying lenses. Most of her left eye is hidden by the centrifugal power of the lens and by rim of the glasses. However, a full image of the model's left eye is visible, projected by the center of the lens. I had seen this peculiar effect a few times before but never managed to take a satisfactory picture of it. The dark background is instrumental in producing the effect in a clear manner. I was quite pleased when seeing this highly unusual portrait. Thank you so much, Iris, for your patience during this series in the red Silhouette glasses!
