Excellent portrait and explanation, Fran!! Thank you for sharing your technique. #301938

Wow! Comments from real people! Thanks so much for taking the time. Understanding and using light effectively is my long-standing weak point, thus it's where I need to be focusing. Thanks, Pat and Len, for the encouragement. #302795

I think the only thing I would change would be to change from a horizontal format to a vertical otherwords turn your camera 90 deg.s..I've told my students that people are standing or sitting in a vertical turn the camera 90 degs...other than that a lovely shot with excellent lighting... #316176

Late afternoon at home. Now we moved into the open sun. This time we used the posterboard to shield the sunlight from hitting the subject directly, while keeping the beautiful lighting on the background plants. With the light blocked from her face, we were able to get nice open-eyed shots again.
