Natures umbrella – FujiX100S portrait

X100S F/2 pop

To me this shot has a few of the key elements that make a good portrait. The shot has a nice candid shot that doesn’t feel posed and un-natural It has something a bit different with the foliage umbrella. The overcast skies made for nice soft even wrap around lighting that makes for a more flattering cover of light without harsh shadows.

Also it’s shot at F/2 on the Fuji X100S, which gives it a nice shallow DOF, that help make the subject pop from the scene, especially given the distant background.

Lastly such a super cute kid to make as the subject..  OK.. I might be a bit bias on this one, since it’s my oldest daughter Devan..   🙂
