[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

This is Sarah, who is the best friend of my daughter, and who was invited round for a studio session in my new home studio, which is equipped with some courtenay 2500 solarflashes, and softbox.

I'm still finding my way around the lights, models etc, and getting some reasonable results. Any critiques greatly appreciated.

This shot was taken with one light, above and to the right of Sarah, with softbox. No other lights....I am trying to work out how to fit a back light into the space!

Not much pp other than healing brush and frame.

Thanks for looking,

Take care,

Nice sharpness, lovely honest light and detail. Well composed. Good eye contact from your model.

The use of lights is looking great on the face. But maybe you could use a small strobe to light the background so that the model stands out. Easy to do in photoshop as well if you don't have an extra spot.
