This shot was taken on a quick walk with the dogs and my daughter, Eilish, at the weekend. The dappled shade in the woods was fantastic with bright sunny patches and deep shade alternating. I really liked the way Eilish appeared to be almost painted by the shade and visualised this as looking really good in black & white, which I think it does. I opted for a wide open aperture to get a nice soft background.
