Technical stuff for those interested. Shot handheld with a Nikon D7000 fitted with the 50mm making
it essentially a 75mm on a cropped sensor. The ISO was 100, camera in manual mode with auto white balance. I kept the f stop at f5.6, the shutter speed 1/160th. Looking at the image, key light from the right is flash shooting thru a 45" Westcott Satin Umbrella. Flash is in manual set to 85mm
for a more concentrated pattern. The overall light is just open shade.
In post, I isolated Maria and made the background more painterly while keeping the subject photographic.
