Lighting is King in Portrait Photography

I recently came across and a portrait photograph that I feel depicts how all portrait photography should be taught. What caught my attention most however was the way the photographer shone the light on this little girl’s face.

Check this out.

All that was used to get this amazing shot was light from a window and a reflector. With a focal length of 85mm and at an ISO of 200, this is excellent image of how to use natural light to get a great shot without the use of expensive and fancy equipment.
