I’m still amazed at how many times I can go to Scarborough Faire and year after year end up meeting more “regulars” whose paths I hadn’t crossed in the past. This last weekend I had the pleasure of running into this very lovely nun just beyond the Mermaid Lagoon. As I was chatting up a few familiar faces I proclaimed that I didn’t believe I had previously had the pleasure of taking her portrait. To this she replied she was very good at hiding.
I captured the shot below of her which I really like. The lighting was very pleasant and I love how she wasn’t looking at the camera. The emotion you can see in her eyes is splendid as well is the expression of her mouth.Equipment: Nikon D700, Nikon 70-300 Post Processing: Lightroom, OnOne Perfect Portrait, Nik Color Efex Pro 4, Nik Viveza, Nik Sharpener Pro, Photoshop Shot Info: 1/250 sec at f 5.6, ISO 500
I sincerely hope I do run into her again this season. One of my faults is I will converse with people as though I already know them without ever introducing myself or asking for their name. It isn’t until later that I end up realizing this and wishing I had.
