Just a great all around photo. I like the the tones of the photo and the soft subtle light. The position of the subject is creative and charming. It is intense w/o being intrusive. It is a favorite. Also, the best I have seen all day. Inspiring. I think what set's it apart is the lighting.

Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in my studio, during a break
Time
Mid morning
Lighting
The lighting as actually not set up for the subject of the photo - It was a standard beauty dish - and portrait setup for a seated adult
Equipment
Canon EOS 5D Mark II, EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM, Studio flashes - elinchrom 500BXri heads. Beauty dish from the top and a wide softbox low on the ground
Inspiration
The pic was taken during a break, My daughter came into the studio and just sat down and was watching me, waiting for me to finish talking to my client. I turned and looked at her and everything was just perfect. The camera was still in my hand so I just crouched down and took the shot
Editing
The only tweak I did, was on the raw file, I adjusted the color balance to enhance her freckles
In my camera bag
Canon EOS 5D MkIII, Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens, Canon EF 100-400mm L IS USM Lens, Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 L IS USM Macro Lens, Helios 135mm prime lens, Canon 5DMkII, extra batteries, cable release, light meter
Feedback
Always be ready for that spontaneous portrait that you were not planning for. If you dont have a camera in your hand you cant take the picture!
