Lady with Typewriter, Camaguey, Cuba
This is an example of what I call an 'engaged' portrait. I was wandering the streets of Camaguey in central Cuba in the late afternoon. Although it was January, the 30 degree temperature meant that people were sitting outside or - like this graceful lady - had doors and windows open. There was deep shade on her side of the road and I pushed the iso to 1600. I caught her eye, we engaged in a conversation, I asked permission to make some images and she was wonderfully obliging.
Technical Details: Canon 1DS mark ii; 24-70mm f2.8 L lens at 35mm; f3.5; 1/40th second; iso 1600.
