( Centre right) “This classical portrait of my model, Lidia, was taken in the controlled environment of a photography studio. I used a simple one- light beauty set- up to create this emotional image, with a flash in a softbox placed above Lidia's head, and a reflector from below to fill the shadows. The image was converted into black & white in Photoshop.” Canon EOS 5D Mk III with Canon EF 50mm f/ 1.2L lens. Exposure: 1/ 160sec at f/ 2.8 ( ISO 50).
