Homework assignment - Portrait by window light

Taken at Westwood Arms Restaurant in Krugersdorp

Didn't have a reflector so I wrapped tinfoil over a huge carton and it worked amazingly well.

Using the window for backlight was clever. I think a tighter composition, leaving out the table below, will improve the overall feeling. I also recommend that you revisit your editing, as your subject's skin is uneven shiny. 


Such a great privilege to have Danie Bester in the lab last week. Thank you again for being such an inspiration and mentor to so many professionals in our industry and especially for sharing your knowledge with our pros
