I really like this shot! Though I'm somewhat distracted with the blurred object as I can't tell what it is.

I'm glad you kept the eyes and lips in the same plain keeping them both in focus.

Behind The Lens

Location
Photograph taken out on the streets of Dubai.
Time
Photograph taken out on the streets of Dubai between 12-1pm on a sunny day mid April, 2017. At 35+ degreeC.
Lighting
Whilst attending a workshop; working with natural light. We found this interesting small alcove of surrounding glass which created a beautiful natural reflected light from the top and sides of the building.
Equipment
Shot with at the time a Nikon D810 camera and with a 85mm f1.4 lens, handheld
Inspiration
The natural light workshop, understanding how to use natural light and surroundings to provide such photographs. This photograph is an example using only the surrounding glass, natural reflected light.
Editing
Camera RAW for the post processing and Photoshop for Dodge & Burn on the skin, gradient and curves for contrast before the final crop.
In my camera bag
Today this varies. Sony A7rii with a mix of Sony G lenses and Nikon lenses with an E to F mount adapter.
Feedback
Look around to find inspiring natural light. Changing your position or view point can have a huge impact on your final image.
