Catherine said : “First of all, thank you so much! This has made my whole year. Equipment used for this photo was a Canon 40D, and a Canon 85mm f1.8. Camera was mounted on a tripod and I used a remote shutter release. Lighting used was a cheap desk lamp, held in my right hand to the right of and slightly above my head, shutter release was in my left hand. Exif – Shutter – 1/60, ISO 250, aperture – f6.3. Edited in Lightroom, the usual tweaks plus some playing with the tone curve and some D&B using the adjustment brushes.”
