Studio, Portrait, Still Life, Lighting Equipment and Technique Continuous and Strobe Lighting. (The Sun is considered continuous!) Great ideas are really ten a penny! Technique in setting up the subject is, of course, essential. However, the ability to bring out form, texture, tonality and color is where the skill in lighting provides all the keys to engraving one's ideas on the delivered picture.

I've a good feeling about this picture. It's interesting that we know she is posing but the pose is still sensitive and although staged, still has sentiments that we relate too.

Good job with the reflector. It's such a simple procedure and so effective here. Tell me how you keep the reflector at the right angle. A favorite stand or an assistant? It's hard to beat a really good helper!'

I would have loved to have seen much more of the location as this is important for the feeling of the work.

Hi Freddy,
Very nicely done!
I agree with Asher's observation of a simplicity within the image.
However to have such a wonderful result, I'm sure the effort was in no way simple!
Great shot!
Warm regards,
John Angulat

Hi Freddy, I like the shot very much although for my taste a warmer light on her would do better.

Hi Freddy,

In general I agree with the comments by Asher, John and Ruben; it is a nice picture.

Since you have chosen to present it using the "Just sharing" prefix, I won't discuss the couple of remarks I have. Thanks for sharing.

Kind Regards, Cem
