I have been away at a work event and a bit out of touch....I always look for interesting people to photograph and today met Stephanie, a law student who is doing some modeling for the event I am attending.

Hi Roger,

Superb portrait,

Beautifull model, great colors and detail.

Fantastic shot.

Greetings from Portugal,


Hello Roger,

It's a very good portrait of this young and pretty model! I like very much the colors of the hair and eyes.

Good glance here Roger, i like it. Nice work!

Rodger this is another great portrait and because of my relatively poor English, I can not praise enough this picture.

Nice job, a "straight and honest" portrait that is very appealing and doesn't hide anything - Stephanie doesn't need to hide any of her looks, either. I am surprised to see how shallow the depth of field is at f/6.3. Your focus is a bit off or so it seems to me, with a sharp nose and cheeks and the eyes a bit softer. I am mesmerized by the intense stare.

Nice honest capture. Good light, good framing and tight composition.

The perfectionist in me would say you should've asked her to move the hair from in front of her eye, and maybe lick her lips before taking the shot so that there wasn't that tiny opening in her mouth ... but for the most part I applaud honesty and realism and for those reasons, I'm glad you posted this as-is.

Boa noite Roger
as usual a wonderful take she´s a wonderful bright in her eyes and the skin. I love that tissue: skin.
My regards

Hi Roger,
Beautiful portrait and pretty eyes, excellent pose and naturels colors, very well done.

Very fine natural portrait here. Excellent tight focus.
My one suggestions, if I may would be to focus on the eyes rather than the cheeks -- a minor suggestion :)

Hi, Roger!

Nice portrait with beautiful model. Superb shot!

Hello Roger! Well done, another great portrait of yours, great model, well composed with good details and perfect light, well done, thanks!


To my mind a secret to good women's portrait - her eyes:)
If she has beautiful eyes - it would be only Your fault if You are not able to make a good shot;)

fantastic shot,been looking at the rest of your work amazing well done

She is a beautiful. Lovely and talking eyes. Nice soft light and good composition.

Very clear portrait showing her fine points like her lovely hair and beautiful eyes and freckles. I did hear a comment about a certain lens that it was not a good protrait lens because it was too clear. I think it all depends on the intention of the photographer and who the shot is really for. This is a very natural shot. Good job
warm regards

Bonjour Roger
Quel regard et quel charme! parfaitement mis en valeur par votre savoir-faire
A very natural portrait in which everything seems done as an easy thing, exactly as it seems so easy to do when you look the conjurer skill .An intense and lovable look
