Default Rodeo Princess - 2014

My cousin's daughter. First one shot in the horse trailer. LP-160 in a 24" soft box camera left.




This one in part of an old livestock sale barn. LP160 camera right in soft box. LP160 behind her for the rim light.

Nicely done. The lighting in #2 worked out great.
I had to look up LP160 to see what you were talking about.

Both good shots, I like the second one the best. The lighting on her hair help makes the picture stand out.

Looking good, the 2nd is a much stronger shot, if the first had been narrow lit it would be more flattering to her (not that it is bad as is).

Contrarian here: I find the OOB look of the first shot more interesting, and the halo around the hat in the second tends to give it the "I just photoshopped this in," look. The hair light is a nice effect, and might be more effective without the hat.

Mark1616 - Can you elaborate please? Why would narrow lighting have been more flattering in this instance?

VTphotog - I understand that may be the effect it gives, but it was generated by the bare flash behind her head. It was too late to get the hat off at this point too. Part of the outfit for the Rodeo Princess. It was one when she walked out of the house.
