The main challenge with this photo was trying to create the level of contrast seen on the left. I assume that Beaton might have used some artificial light source to brighten the right side of the subject's face. However, since it was still relatively light outside, I tried to create the same effect with natural light, and was not so successful. However, the contrast was enough such that you can still see a distinct edge between the subject and the texture of the background. The black jacket definitely helped in this regard. We took this photo first with some other articles of clothing, and the piece did not feel as balanced. Although not a perfect replication, this shot still gives the same intense feeling as the original.
