Prime Lens Portraits

I gave my Prime Lens another go with these portrait shots. The shoot in general was a little difficult as I was working on such staged images yet was quite unprepared in the situation for this. So, I had to improvise by using two iPhone torches balanced on a chair just to the side of the subject to light them, along with a bed sheet hung on the wall for a plain background. Considering this, I feel the shoot was still successful as the back drop doesn’t distract the eye from the model and the light is sufficient to highlight the face. However, I do think the lighting could have been executed better.

These are a few of my most successful shots before and after editing.
