    I think all types of camera settings could get this picture, so it is probably impossible to tell what settings the photog is using. It looks like a basic picture with minimal post processing done to it. Looks like she should right up against a brick wall on a cloudy day.

    FYI.. TPF doesn't really appreciate people posting other's works within the forum. You can certainly link to it, but don't post the photo itself unless you're the photographer.

    Id like to know what about this pic is it that you like or inspire to copy? Under the same conditions whatever the original photographers camera settings were are to be avoided in my opinion.

    That was going to be my comment. I don't see what there is about this photo that anyone would want to emulate.

    TPF forum rules and regs don't allow us to post photos we don't own the copyright too, or have a valid use license for.

    Posting a link is OK, and doesn't violate US Federal copyright law.

    In your favorite application, it looks simple enough.

    Increase Exposure
    Lower contrast
    Lower Saturation



    Yes.. please do replace the photo with a link to the photographer's page.

    Color desaturation
    Reduced contrast
    cross process or color cast filter or w/b push into a higher kelvin.

    If you need to know the exact cross process I can figure it out on my editing machine.
