Natural light outdoor headshot from teen model portfolio session at my house in the Catskills Mountains late-summer/early-fall shoot with color starting to come into the leaves. Diffused sunlight day allowed for this shot with no additional lighting or fill. The shot was composed making sure the background contained mostly ground and trees instead of open sky to reduce flare. The shy and sensitive pose reflects the personality of this young model and actress who has been successful at portraying roles younger than her chronological age, so we wanted to keep the overall mood youthful and fresh.
