Very nice portrait.

Behind The Lens

Location
This was made in a very small studio (small office turned into a studio) on my school's campus.
Time
Sometime in the afternoon, doesn't really mater
Lighting
There is one light that is parallel, or close to, the ground right above her head. The edge of the softbox sits right above her face.
Equipment
I was using my university's camera which was a Sony ar7iii and a 90mm f/2.8 macro lens. The light is an alienbee and a softbox. I had a basic Pocketwizard transceiver on the camera and light.
Inspiration
I had seen a video by Gavin Hoey where he used a thin plastic film as a prop for his model. I loved the outcome and wanted to try my own version.
Editing
Her eyes are the most edited. I added a little bit of color on top of her natural color to give them a little more of a pop. I also cleaned up some loose strands on the edge of the fabric.
In my camera bag
Even though I shot this with a Sony, that is not my camera. I was able to use that equipment while I was a student working for the school publications. Outside of that, my normal bag is a Nikon D7100 with a 70-200 f/2.8 and 24-70 f/2.8.
Feedback
I gave my model very general directions. "Wrap the cloth around your nose and look at the camera." I let her pose herself to make it look more natural. The one light is a huge part of this shot. It is placed almost touching the top of her head with none of the light going past her face.
