Another oldie from a workshop where i was amongst the 'trainees' although actually i ended up doing some of the tutoring.

For newer togs -

personally i have a bit of an issue with the tops of the mayflower (or whatever) running through the back of the image / subject. a wide aperture reduces the depth of field so that the subject suffers from less background distraction, whilst use of negative exposure compensation reduces the risk of highlights appearing.
