Arthur, this is one of the best character studies I have seen in a while, The story telling motion of her hand and concentration of her work and wondering what she is writing combine to achieve a portrait in natural light. The impact from the side lighting from the right and body angle just done so well, Great Portrait in natural light !
Arthur , superb character study of this older lady, including a story teller, in motion and recording something in a book this is what makes an image having impact, which once it catches your eye it is hard to let go , natural light portraits have a way of recording someone that hold the realism of seeing it as the eye does.
compositionally Arthur, there are five factors all working together, 1 st her head ( main subject) is in the #2 position thirds, 2nd, she is positioned diagonally from left to right in the same direction as the window light,3rd, the light entering the top right casts diagonally onto her equal to that of her body position. 4th her arm is triangle framing her. 5th with the left hand working and flowing to and from her eyes. with what I see is either a little vinetting or the natural light focusing on the main subject to create that effect. excellently composed Arthur !!
Use of camera,
all setting used well to achieve this wonderful image, Iso 200 to keep the contrast in control and the image sharp.
Depth is greatly achieved by use of f 5.6 and blow the background out of focus , and still keep her back and face sharp.
The color overall is very good, repletion in tones and tones that do not take anything away from the main subject, contrast just right, wonderful skin tones giving excellent detail in the face, However Arthur, one area that could use corrections, the hot spot on her right leg thigh, this could be toned sown , it does move my eye from her face to her leg.
focus is very sharp
How to improve your photo
ensure Arthur to view over your image for hot spots, and make the correction needed.
