I don't remember the settings for these--probably a wide open aperture (f/2.8 to f/1.8), low ISO, shutter speed . . . who knows? Shadow adds instant drama to any photo, but my sister created this effect by holding our antique wicker rocking chair over her head while standing directly in the sun at midday. She looks like she's got a net over her face, doesn't she? In fact, she liked the look so much that she in instigated another, later photo shoot with a makeshift net hat--another example of photographic shadow-play.
