I thought I would share my settings and a pullback of a recent shot of Caroline.
I very often take photos of my girls in this little spot in our kitchen.
My settings here were: 1/250 sec; f/1.8; ISO 400 and I used a 35mm 1.4.
I spot metered off of her cheek that’s closest to the window light.
This is the unedited image.
Here is the pullback. I’m standing in the X spot and Caroline is the smiley face.
I had her sit at just a bit of an angle to the window.
And here’s the final edit. I hope this helps someone!
