Model: Ashley van Bree
Photographer: Bram van Dal

Camera settings:
Shutterspeed: 1/500
Aperture: F / 2.0
Iso: 200
Lens: 85mm

Location: Philitelaan, at Strijp-S in Eindhoven.

The simplicity of a long street, direct sunlight is stopped by the building on the left, the sun is in relation to the model behind it.
To ensure that she sees points of light in her eyes, I give the model the advice to keep at least 1 on the horizon and in case they want to adjust the viewing direction in the photo, to look along a white object , to ensure that that reflection creates a bright spot,

To reinforce the texture of the collar of her jacket, the technique, frequency separation, is a great way to make this texture come into its own even more.

I would crop a little bit above the zippers as my eye goes there from time to time. Try covering the zippers and see at the crop. Your eyes go to her eyes. Now see the image with the zippers and see how the eyes jump up and down to her eyes and the zippers.

hey mate...i've looked at a few of your images now and i must say, your focus on the eyes is tack sharp! it's really refreshing to see photographers still getting the basics right these days

Thank you, in the beginning wasn't easy to get sharp pictures. After calibration of de lens, was it easier to make the right pictures.
