This is Maria and she's a wonderful violinist. Here are some portraits we did today in my studio. She loves music and violin. You can see that clearly from the photos.
All shoot with natural light and the help from two day light balanced light bulbs bounced through umbrellas.
Since I'm also a violinist we had many things to talk about and that really helped to break the ice and get her to relax. I think it's so important to set a connection with the subject your portraying, even more so than what focal length, ISO, camera or setting you choose. Thanks for looking.
