Behind The Lens

I took this photo at a nature preserve in Orange County, CA.
It was about 6pm in April, fairly close to golden hour.
My subject is actually backlit and the sun was low in the sky.
Canon R6, Canon 85mm 1.8
I love the mustard bloom and look forward to photographing in it every year. They usually are more sparse but we had an unusual excess of rain this spring.
I use the My Four Hens Photography action sets. Most of these actions were in the "Simple Set".
In my camera bag
My main body is the Canon R6 and my backup is the Canon 6D. My lenses are Sigma 50mm ART, Sigma 35mm ART, Canon 85mm 1.8, and Canon 24-105.
Shoot with a lens that has good compression and use a shallow depth of field. I focused on the eyes and used flowers in front to get more depth and texture. My model's expression is caught by telling them to look deep into the camera and relaxing the face and lips.
