This photo of Xenia was made inside her kitchen. The lens was a Sigma 85/1.4 one, which gives nice bokeh. The kitchen was not terribly large, so I had to stand back as far as possible, but I like the 85mm a bit better than the 50mm (Canon 50/1.4).
I used only natural lighting. In a mostly white house this gives very nice soft lighting. The weather wasn’t too sunny, mostly clouds at the time of this shot really. In the Netherlands at this time of year the weather changes quickly all the time.
