WOW lovely.
Would have softened a little bit under the right eye (picture wise).

But lovely lady and love the background.
Good job.

Thanks for all the kind comments, I would like recommendations on the placement of the lights also ,I got a DVD with the Elinchrom kit and followed the instructions.I maybe had the lights places a little close ,but the room I did the shoot in (kitchen) is tiny

Thanks

TD

Wow, nice job TD.. I'm no expert on lighting, still trying to figure mine out. But It looks like you did a pretty good job to me. How close were the softbox's to her? No hot spots..

Beautiful subject, Well done!!

hello my friend how are you??

The main softbox was about 2m away , the second about 1m, but set 1 stop lower than the main box.I did have a flash meter on that shoot but it was faulty.

I just used the D50 highlights feature(where on the preview screen the area of blown highlights flashes) ,I shot in aperture mode and just adjusted the aperture til I had no blown highlights.I did not photoshop under Jenny`s eye ,as I wanted to show a straight from camera shot with very minimal PP,so as to show what the light kit was capable of.

Thanks

TD
