Pining for the Silver Screen

I took this silver screen-style portrait using hard window light. The sun was coming directly through the window late morning. The window panes serves as a gobo, casting the shadow on the chest and shoulders. The light was somewhat diffused by a sheer white window covering. The lens also had a 1/4 black pro mist filter to create that subtle glow. I kept edits natural to add to the field of the image.

Thanks! I think this is because the light coming through the window was pretty directional hard sunlight but still diffused through the window. The diffusion filter helps give it that vintage feel as well. Thanks for commenting!
