Hi Linda,
I'm very glad you like this shot. Collin is an excellent model; she has a variety of expressions and poses. In addition, she is quite patient. I really like the light in this shot. I had wonderful sunlight coming from the left side of the shot and a small amount of strobe to open up the front of the image. The strobe was mounted on a camera bracket. I really like what you can do with fill flash outdoors; the possibilities are nearly endless. The colors in the eucalyptus trees are always wonderful. The shallow depth of field does a good job of isolating the subject.
Thanks! John Siskin
