Portrait shot

I took snaps, but I think this one goes more with what I would shoot. The composition could be stronger but here it goes. I didn't like the skin tones when I opened it but played with contrast and fill light to get a bit of a smoother skin toned face.

In ISO 100 the shadow range is pretty decent, but makes sense since ISO 200 just shifts the exposure to preserve highlights at the expense of shadows. If I was shooting regularly with a DP2M I would try to expose to the right and use ISO 100 for more control when I could take time to meter/setup the shot.

Shot wide open, ISO 100.
