I tried somethin new with this picture of my daughter Kathy. First of all she is in her mid forties with four children, one of which is married. She did no special preparation for this photo and in fact just stopped by for a short visit. The image was taken with window light only and almost no manipulation in PS. I covered my 17-55mm lens with a thin black nylon scarf and shot with the lens wide open. It is not a studio shot but rather was done in my living room with Kathy looking over the back of the couch and into a large window. I was positioned no more than three feet from the her. I would be interested in your comments and/or suggestions.
