I snapped a few photos of my best friend Krystal, who dabbles in modeling (obviously.. she’s so beautiful) We were sitting in her room hanging out, and I noticed how ‘in her element’ she was. She was in a calm and mellow mood, barefoot and happy. I really think these photos let her inner ballet dancer come out. And that’s what portraits are all about. It’s capturing one in their element; in their world. These photos tell a story without words.
I used my 50mm at f/1.2 which really lets me zoom into a particular element in the photo, while letting everything else blend out in a dreamy and elegant way. It’s amazing what kind of magic one can create with some window light and a 1.2 aperture :]
