Handheld

70-200mm f/2.8 VR II @ 200mm on a Nikon D800

Minimal editing in Photoshop, as my Lightroom machine is out of action currently

I struggle with story a lot with my photos, but I feel that this one tells a great story and shows an insight into our modern lives. The phone is a centre-point at her own 21st, Her gown is modest, yet revealing, her face is turned slightly away, drawing you to want to see more. Even the table in the background works to help define her back in the bright highlights.

Overall, very happy with this snap.
