I took a series of shots of my cousin Bon yesterday. This one was a very simple shot. The afternoon sun was streaming from the window on camera right and I had to carefully meter the exposure so that I capture all the details. I added a simple gradient from top frame right to bottom frame left to give a little bit more depth to the image. I also did some dodging and burning to the face to increase the tonal range.
