I've mentioned before how I like to shoot portraits with a long focal length. This is just another example....
shot at 200mm, f4
Standing back and zooming in to 200mm, the foreground and background are greatly compressed, giving the photo a unique "look". Fill light was provided by an off- camera speedlight to the right, and accent lighting from a low, late-afternoon sun.
