How good is this example of Portrait Photography from one of our students, Rachel Parkinson?

Rachel is working on Unit 8 of our Professional Photography Course.

Rachel has included her settings and her thoughts on setting up this shot:

“Manual mode, f/2.8, shutter 1/250, ISO 400

I used a continuous soft box which has a fluorescent bulb. I chose split lighting because I had a male subject and wanted a dramatic look. In post production I warmed it up a little bit but then decided it look more how I imagined as a black and white. My subject is happy with the image.”

Great job Rachel and thanks for letting us share.
