Olga with Pearl Earring
One of my favorite portraits, the "Girl with Pearl Earring" by Dutch painter Jan Vermeer (1665) is the inspiration for this portrait of Olga.
It took a while before we figured out a way to make the scarfs stay on. The light is natural window light, the background a black piece of cloth.
I tried the Zeiss 50mm before switching to the Canon 85mm lens. Had to dial in 800ASA to manage the light, and used Dfine2.0 to reduce the noise this caused in postprocessing.
