Sometimes, natural portraits without much make-up are unavoidable. This is because the subject could be young and does not possess sufficient make-up skills and if the make-up artist is not available.
I must say, i am kinda liking the Xvario for portraits despite not having the shallow dof. Using PS i could creatively apply blurring at certain areas. The model in this photo shoot is Elyn, its her first shoot and i am quite happy with the results.
