Default My 2nd portrait session, with beautifull Sanna

So, this is like my 2nd more serious portrait shot ever, taken at home with a black garn hanging on the wall, and my 2 flashguns.

What do you guys think?

Nicely done!

I really like the "natural" pose of no.6.

Pictures are fine in all regards; However on the close-ups, they may need some help from Photoshop to enhance their beauties...

1. I would remove all the stray hairs
2. Mask and apply gaussian blur to smooth out the skin

Thanks guys for the comments NHL, thanks for the critique, I did some photoshopping on the close ups, but I still wanted the picture to look natural, cause the model (my friend) wanted to have the photos. And it just felt wierd to photoshop the picture to much somehow.. Dont know why I feel like that, just wanted to keep it kinda real in some way..

Great work, I think we are going to be seeing some wonderful stuff from you in the future.

What was your background?

Thanks Mark, youre comment made my day I actually just was using a black quilt cover (is that how its called?) I just put it up with 2 bolts on the wall, and then I used my fan at home to make her hair come alive a litle bit more. ( you dont need a fancy studio, just some imagination. And I just use 2 flashguns aswell )

Best regards, Istvan

#2 is my choice here. Very nice. The other have risky crops and close ups.
