Photographer: George Prapas – GP_MG_8774

Hey guys! My name is Kristina Sherk and I’m a professional retoucher and portrait photographer from Washington DC. At our DC headshot studio, we like to think we know a thing or two about photographing and retouching people, so I’m going to start featuring some amazing portrait photographers on Mondays, here on Photofocus!

Here’s our first featured portrait photographer:

Bulgarian photographer George Prapas has got a keen eye for photographing people and it absolutely shows on his website. I love the use of lens flare in this shot. The model is so beautifully lit, and the lens flare totally adds a mystical feel to the image.

This image was taken using the Canon EOS 40D with the EF85mm f1.8 lens. The aperture was set to f/2.5, with a focal length of 85mm. The shutter speed was set to 1/160th and the iso was low, at 125.

With more than 100 comments on this image on Flickr, we can tell we aren’t the only ones loving this image! I’d definitely follow him for more amazing portrait work!
