50mm Senior Portrait

When shooting portraits, don't be afraid to mix up your shooting position. For this downward-angled shot, I was standing on a step ladder.
 
Ashley's head is positioned with only green grass framing it. There are no distracting lines behind her head, shoulders and hair. Most of the balance of her body is framed by the rock she is sitting on.
 
Yellow daisies and taller green grass provide color and balance to the image.
 
Lighting for this picture is 100% natural. A patio roof subtracts some light from her right side, allowing the light from the sky to create soft light with a touch of dimensionality.
