Challenge has finished
High-end formal portraits are almost always shot with elaborate studio strobes. The old masters demonstrated that window light provides ideal lighting (of course their exposure times measured in days or weeks).

This challenge calls for a carefully arranged pose of a single person, looking at the camera, clearly photographed in window light. IMPORTANT: see Additional rules.
