    Default How to take this kind of photo?

    http://www.studio-workz.com/golive/swmain.html

    Click the right arrow once, and then click on the 2nd circle from the top.

    Is there a filter used for this photo?

    Not too difficult. You need a med-tele lens. Pose the model at far, focus on the model face, use aperture about f4 or f5.6, then in front of your lens, you hold a bunch of leaves very near to your lens. The green leaves will be out of focus due to DOF control, and becomes blur.
    Alternatively you can take a sharp photo and use photoshop to blur the leaves.
    More alternatively you can come join us again,

    To add to what austin had mentioned, the photographer seem to had use a bit of fill in flash too.

    There is a small chance the photographer is standing near a dead end on his left, possibly leaning on the wall. visible vignetting on the top left hand corner of the picture.

    Personally, I perferred the last picture where she is in red sitting. Made full use of natural lighting with the sun from her back, something I had yet to get the hang on properly .
