A simple portrait of one of my children's babysitters, who is also a model and actress. It was shot just up the hill from me approximately one hour before sunset. I am purely a natural light photographer and do not use reflectors.

Shot with my Canon 5D Mark III and my 85mm 1.2L lens. Processed in Photoshop using my own actions.

85mm · f/1.2 · 1/160s · ISO 500

I like everything about it. Good job preserving skin texture and delicate tones. As much as I like to shoot wide open, I would have stopped down a bit, so her hair and hand wouldn't go so soft.

Great capture. Love the palette. And I'm a fan of shooting wide open as you've done beautifully here.
