I think the best light for portraiture is natural light. This was shot in the shade, against a dirty wall. We always use a reflector to fill in the shades, but this time I thought I didn`t need it.
I`m happy with the result, I think they look GREAT, but I wish I had listened to Jeanette, and used the reflector. A little more light thrown back to their faces would give this photograph some more depht.
Still learning. And having fun!

I don't know. I like this look. It seems that they have a soft glow around them. Of course, that could just be my computer screen.
Plus, the different outfits help to create the illusion of depth.
It's a good people photo.
The light actually looks ok to me; the little shadows on the faces are necessary to give them volume. And I agree about natural light. Maybe because of ignorance (I don't really know how to use artificial lights) but I like finding good lightning opportunities with the light that I have available. Like solving a puzzle... interpreting my spaces...
