Shoot the Light Fantastic

Took a portrait lighting class with local lighting whisperer Rick Taylor. Studio, outdoor, additive, subtractive, Split, Rembrandt, Loop, Butterfly and Glamour lighting, we examined them all. Great instruction on using natural light (i.e. the sun) allowed me to capture the image below. Most interesting though is his recommendation to shoot portraits with long lenses. Image below was shot at 300mm.
