Light source is a small glass door away from the sun; ISO 200; f-stop is wide open (4.5) with focal length at 70 mm; hand held with shutter speed at 100. Focus is on her hair, and she was a bit of a moving target. The focal point being on her hair (along with open aperture) produced this sharper outer edge and the soft facial blur...somewhat of an accident I'm happy with.

    It's really lovely, David. I love the softness and of course the eye contact. IT has a nice, intimate feel and the shadows are wonderful as well. Nice work, my friend:)

    I don't have this image posted anywhere else.

    It was taken August 16 at a friends place...posted only on JPG, the 19

    ...might be the Baroque look that is familiar...the chiaroscuro

    ...reminds me of the kind of a look present in certain paintings by Caravaggio, or George de La Tour .
