.gaze.This was one of my first attempts at a formal type portrait. I normally dont get many volunteers to be a practice model. I dont have the money for studio strobes and I dont like the look and feel of hot lights. For this shot all I used was some sunlight that was being bounced around in a room creating a nice soft feeling to it. One of these days I’ll save up for a strobe system and a nice backdrop, but at the moment, I’m stuck with the budget portraits. I urge you to look at the previous two posts here. They are both tutorial posts. Please leave me a comment if anyone actually finds what I write useful. Feedback has been kind of lax lately. Thanks.

Technical Details:
Camera: Canon 300D

Frankly, I like natural lighting best for portraits on most occasions. This is very well done–good placement within the frame. Hope you can find more friends to sit for you.
