Met this girl named Natalie and she is extremely awesome! Turns out that she used to be a photographer as well except she was were I want to be eventually. She actually did photography for her job. Since she was experienced with taking photos she had also posed for many other peoples photos so I asked if she would pose for mine. Thankfully she was nice enough to say yes. Being that she has modeled before she was incredible to work with. I found it easy to direct her and tell her what I wanted and she even had a lot of good ideas that she thought would look good and they all worked. This is only one picture of many great ones out of the batch I have. I’ll probably put some more up eventually but for right now this will have to do. I’m pretty particular with the people that I am willing to do portraits of for my own projects and fortunately Natalie fit the mold. She is gorgeous and has an intense look in her eyes that really draws you in and I knew from the start of photographing her that these photos would turn out awesome. I tried to portray her intensity in these photos and went for a pose and look that really focused on that. I used a really shallow depth of field by shooting at f/1.4 with my 50mm lens. I found that this helped me keep the focus where I really wanted it which was her eyes. As far as post-processing goes, I barely even touched this photo. This is one of the few pictures where I didn’t have to clear up any blemishes because she didn’t have any! It was great. All I really did was put a curves and levels adjustment, enhanced some of the colors and cross processed the image a bit in Photoshop Camera Raw. Hope you like the results!
