Project 52 ... 12

This is Maria.

D200, Tamron 17 - 50, F2.8, SB 800 softbox camera left


Maria is of Italian extraction which is given away by her beautiful continental looks, and photographing a beautiful lady is always very easy. She is a wonderful lady and great friend of the family

I placed an SB 800 in a diy softbox to camera left very close to Maria's face, but at such an angle that the reflection of it would not bounce off her glasses and into the lens; you want to be able to see through, her very fashionable, glasses! The resulting light was very soft and wrapped around her face perfectly. A bare flash would have been too harsh and the shadows hard and unflattering.

We spent about half an hour taking a few shots until I had the one I wanted. A great shoot, thanks Maria.
