In fashion photography, beginning models must build their portfolio focusing on a clean and basic look. This portrait/beauty shoot was one of the very first shoots for 13-year-old Mo. Using the open shade under a tree, I shot the 50mm 1.4 with leaves directly in front of the lens. This created a nice framing around the models face. By shooting at 1.4 the background also became a soft and pleasing palette of greens.
