Portrait Photography at the Park – 365 Project – Day 38

I’ve been doing a lot of portraits lately, so here is one more portrait photography for you!


This is Marina, she’s an actress, model, dancer, an aspiring singer and author. We were at one of the lakes in Maksimir park where I took a portrait of her, combining natural light with one of my flashes. Most of the pics turned out quite well, and here are two of my favorites. We even had a flock of ducks posing in the background of the first photo, which really made the shot look complete.

Most of the light in the pic is natural, except one flash on the right side providing the key light. Shot through softbox at 1/32 power. Check the last pic for all the details!


Camera and light settings:

  • Canon 600D @ 1/125 ISO 100
  • Canon EF 50mm f1.4 @ f1.4
  • YN-560III flash @ 1/32 – shot through softbox (90 x 60 cm)
  • Triggered by Yongnuo YN560-TX manual flash controller


And a bonus pic!
