This shot was an outtake while I was still setting up my lights (I didn’t even wait to get a full smile from my beautiful model!), but I love the way it turned out. Aside from it being shot head-on, mugshot style, her hint of a smile is very reminiscent of the Mona Lisa, in my opinion.

Whatever, I’m not biased.

Simple set-up shooting through an umbrella as the keylight to camera left, a reflector to camera right.
