    Hi Chad, thanks for submitting a solid shot! I don’t know if I see three different light sources with this shot, only two, but nonetheless it’s a good example of making light look dynamic and professional! Keeping focus at f/2 and such close distance can definitely be tough, especially if you’re in One-Shot and using the center AF point.

    My main critique for this photo would be that I think the white balance needs to be a bit warmer.. I feel like I can tell that the light on her face is a little bit blue, even though the light on her shoulders seems to be a touch warmer.

      I’ve been using the single point AF with back button focus. So now I set the single point AF on the subjects eye and focus on that. Thanks for the critique! I was using OCF with a grid or two, so I can probably LR Mask her face just for temp to match the temp of the fall off.
