Beautiful portrait and model. You captured her inner beauty as well

Behind The Lens

I took this photo at my apartment, I have recently aquired a background screen and strobelight. I want to start a home studio and I believe this Award will definately be a great addition to my portfolio.
I made an appointment with my colleague for the afternoon, and this picture was taken around 15.00 CET. This was my first shoot with of someone with the back ground and strobelight.
We made different photo's with different positions of the lighting. at one point we decided to do a pose with the back to the camera and looking to the leftside. This one came out to be amazing
The photo was shot with a Nikon D5200, 50mm lens at F1.8, using a Nikon SB700 and umbrella for the lighting. and a black background screen
I wanted to start with portrait photography, but didn't had all the equipment yet to actually do it. So I decided to purchase the equipment that i thought was needed and asked a colleague if she would like to have a photoshoot.
I have done a little bit of skin smoothening and color grading.
In my camera bag
At the moment of shooting i only had the Nikon D5200, 50mm F1.4 prime lens, 18-140mm kit lens and the Nikon SB-700 strobelight Recently I purchased a AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED Lens
I don't have much experience with portrait images yet, this is my first photo that won an award. I think as long as you have fun and the result looks natural and you a good feel to it it's worth it.
