Portrait of a Russian lady, Saint Petersburg, Russia
Trying myself at portraits at a party. In the picture Sonia, a Russian guest at my friend's "vecherinka" (or party, Russian style) I used a special lense for portraits, 85mm and a great aperture of 1.8 which allows for special effects and intimate portraits without beeing too close.
Technicalities: Canon 5dMarkIII, Lenses: Canon 85mm, 1.8; ISO: 1000, speed: 1/100 sec. treatment of the texture with Photoshop, no flash
