This is awesome. I've always been fascinated by the texture of faces, and so far, this is one of my favorites. Great Shot.

Behind The Lens

Location
In my home studio
Time
Late afternoon
Lighting
Three softboxes, two in front, one above. All uncomfortably close to the subject. They were so bright, it made her eyes water a bit. I think it added some drama to the photo.
Equipment
Canon t5i with the 18-55mm kit lens. Tripod, of course. No flash.
Inspiration
This is my mother. Shortly before this was taken, her mother passed away. The ring on her finger belonged to her mother.
Editing
Two levels of sharpening with a blue filter to get the look.
In my camera bag
Canon t5i, 18-55mm, 40mm pancake, 60mm macro, 50 mm, 75-300mm telephoto, 10-18mm lenses. Flash, various filters, vasoline....
Feedback
Ask the subject to wear no makeup, get the focus as sharp as possible, and bathe them in light.
