I did a portrait shoot on Sunday and, as much as every woman I photograph is simply beautiful, there are some faces that the camera just loves. Often it has nothing to do with classic beauty. It’s something else. That something else that Marilyn Monroe had – although she had incredible beauty also, so she’s probably a bad example, but you know what I mean.
This model had had no previous experience and was quite nervous to start. The camera didn’t care, though.
These were studio shots, with two lights illuminating the background, and one light with a softbox at about 45 degrees to the model and and slightly above her.
