Neil’s challenge to me was:

“The faces on Gift’s Saber figures have been controversial, but I have always liked them. Indulge me with a good close up of her face. Optionally, light the photo with actual outdoor sunlight, ’cause it’s Springtime.”

Despite practically never seeing the sun anymore, I do enjoy working with natural light. I used a simple reflector in this shot to get more of it onto the figure – just some aluminum foil adhered to a piece of cardboard and tilted until the reflected light landed where I wanted it to.
