My first studio session at college. I took this using simply a studio flash with a snoot attached positioned above the model, then just asked her to look up at the wall. I know it breaks the rules as her eyes aren't in focues, but I kinda like it. Thanks for looking!

Very dreamy portrait of Shannen, excellent lighting, her pose and expression is very appealing.
Works well in B&W.
