Shot with a Canon 1Ds Mark ll and a 70-200 MM canon F4 Lens, 1/125th of a sec at F13.
I have always liked rim or side lighting and the way it adds texture and highlights to subjects. Marit has this wonderful oval shaped face. I asked her to put her hands around her face. Her hands and her hair style added to the shape of her face and created a very graphic and balanced look. The rim and backlighting accented the texture in her hair and helped separate her from the background while highlighting her shoulders.
