Pensive

Pensive by Emily Burgess

Pensive was shot on a warm summer evening. I was trying out my new lens and decided I wanted to capture a portrait image with only the subject being in focus and everything else blurred. I waited patiently and when the opportunity occurred, I took my one and only shot. Everything fell into place that instant, from the lighting, composition down to the facial expression. I could not have asked for a better moment.
