This is a portrait I did with my girlfriend. There was no special make up etc. involved.

We were about to leave her new flat when I saw this wonderful light coming from the big window. I took this shot with my Canon 5D and the 50mm 1.4, wich I happened to have on my body. I shot the lens wide open to get this dreamy DOF. The lens choice was not perfect though. The 50mm gives quite a bit of distortion at this focus-distance, so the nose looks much bigger than it really is.
