Taking good (portrait) pictures doesn't require expensive equipment. Sometimes, all you need is the knowledge about natural light and how it behaves and it can take just a minute to take a nice portrait picture. That's all what it took me to take this picture - simple yet beautiful (at least to my personal opinion). I took the photograph with the subject standing very close to a window which was also covered with white-neutral cloth. This way I got a double-diffused natural light. It was all that simple! If you would like to learn more about light, how to use it to your benefit to get amazing shots, I highly recommend Bert Stephani's Motivational Light DVD.
