In this environmental portrait, I first cropped and straightened the picture with the ruler tool. Later I removed blemishes and fly away hairs. I also changed the brightness and contrast in order to draw more attention to the face.
In order to take portraits with natural light, the picture should be taken in manual mood. The shutter speed should be fast, and for a blurred background, the aperture should be large. The ISO should be as low as possible. Aperture Priority mood can also be used with an ISO of 400. Sunsets can provide the softest light possible for portraits. Soft light can also be achieved during an overcast day.
