I wanted to take a photo like this. This one turned and faced me briefly.
My flash is not the most diffused, but for now this is what I managed.
90D, 180Canon +1.4Tamron TC+36mm ET, 1/200, f20, handhold approach, Photopea and some Topaz.
Hope to refine such portrait shots in future,hopefully with more naturalistic lighting style.
Hope its an interesting view and comments are welcomed for improvement.

Wonderful detail and colours - and in my humble opinion I would say this is excellent, Darren!
