    Ellen is such a nice lady. Positive speaking, edifying, and well spoken. Shot with Fujifilm X-Pro 2, 60mm macro, natural light. Itried to place some catch light in her eyes but her glasses were messing with me to do so. DSCF6432E%20BW-01.jpeg

    Yes, begging for shadows but the laugh is saving it.

    The reflector was not cooperating with me. Not sure how to get around that yet. I tried various things in post but my skill in that area is pretty much nil.

    I think it's really a nice portrait, but still needs some work afterwards.
    No complicated operations, use the 'contrast/brightness' and 'curves' sliders a bit, that's all I've done in this case.
    Because I do not like the background so much, I've removed some irregularities (clone tool), just my personal taste!
    Perhaps the least beautiful thing of this portrait is the cut-out through the head and the too large space at the bottom of the photo.
    That's why I cut away an extra piece both above and below (yes I know, sounds logical), so creating a new balance in the composition.
    I know you're using Mac, so why not try this free software: Gimp (GIMP - Downloads) and Raw Therapee (RawTherapee Downloads)
    Obviously this edit is only my opinion.
