A Glance Behind
Lens: Tamron Twin-Tele 135mm Camera: KS-1 Photo Location: Rivington ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/50s 

A great opportunity appeared to try some clean portrait shots. This to my eye was one of the best shots I've captured that I feel conveys a story and would make a viewer spend time looking at the image.

Would there be any recommendations on what elements to be aware of for future portraits using naturally available lighting?

Too much background I think. I would go for a square format by cropping off a lot of the top and perhaps a bit of the bottom.

At first I thought the photographer in the shot was standing below the boulder the model sat upon....then wondered if the model was a centaur.....those extra legs

after studying the crop a while all became clear

Haha, thanks bobD, the location and an additional shot I captured of the model did give a Greek mythology vibe, however I wasn't experiencing a Jason and the Argonauts moment .

I'm using this shot to test how capable a print from the KS-1 and these manual lenses comes out, excited to see results.

I like both versions of the image. The legs/feet did throw me off too. I thought the subjects feet were actually the photographers feet at first....(but that's certainly nothing you could help or change)

Regards,

Michael

Cheers Michael, always a case of hindsight thinking 'if I'd just moved across to the right a touch more..'

I was so mesmerised that the model was happy to let me and my friend join in from a distance during her and the other photographers shoot, and her casting a glance my way, I hadn't seen the foot issue
