Howdy all!

 

Well, I can say it's one lame summer over here this year...  Each and every day there's rain and thunderstorm - almost no chance to go for a walk outside to catch some sun  :mellow:   Anyways, this photo of my friend Natalia was taken inside during one heavy thunderstorm.  A big window here served us as a light source and a duffuser.  Used Canon EOS 6D camera + Canon 24-105mm f/4 lens @ 105mm, f/6.3, 1/200, ISO 1600.  Some brightness&contrast adjustments were made in Lightroom afterwards.

All your work is top shelf...this one is silky smooth and flawless (as mentioned).

Beautiful portrait. Is silky smooth because of the diffused light source?
I can't get over that silky, soft effect!

Thank you for the comments guys! The smooth effect surely is achieved by having a soft diffused light from some continous light source. The window glass takes role of a diffuser here, hence the smooth shadows are rendered. Another method of achieving this smooth picture effect is by using a piece of cloth on the lens. What I sometimes do is put a piece of silk fabric, cut a hole in it, and wrap it around the front element of the lens. I learned this trick in one of photo classes I took. Try it out.
