After a lot of looking at posts here, primarily Franks, and some of Kalypso's, we tried some shots using the light to see what we could come up with. This was one of our favorites.

Oh very nice.

The backlight is a bit strong here I guess, you can see some noise in the image and some overshoot on the hairs and models, mostly that is due to the fact the model is completly overblown by the back.
You could try a little bit of fill in flash to loose the noise and the overblown areas, most of the time you must take care that the background is not more than 1-2 f-stops over the main subject.

It could offcourse be intented this way, and than I love the effects .
The overblown areas are really flattering on the body, but on the hair I miss a bit of the detail, the noise is an aquired taste on color pics I don't really like it to be honest.

The overal shot, is very powerful, nice posing, wonderful model and great composition.
Keep on going.

Greetings,
Frank

Thank you Ziggy...and Frank.

I was hoping for a reply from you. I am still very inexperienced, and even though this is very nearly what we were trying to do, I know that better results are still coming. I will try your advice, and when we get together for another shoot, I'll post them afterward to see if I can benifit from from your constructive comments. I do look carefully at all the posts and read everyone's exchange to one another. I agree, we do have the best hobby!

great shot, i actually like the grain in the photo it adds a nice effect. You may not have been going for that look but I do like the grainy shot.I bet in blackand white it would look even better

I liked the thought of that idea, and so i tried it. I wanted to preserve the softness of the overall image, so I experimented a bit. How do you like it?

I think the original was even better than the enhancement. Great shot!
