Yes it is much better.... and the grey background color can be very good looking as neutral to put the subject more in attention.

I think that your model is still too close the the background (how far is she standing)....I would suggest at least 1.5m.

Excellent copy look, good posing, just would do something more with her hair, looks a litle wild......un-defined correctly....

but improvement to your work it is seenable.......lucky you having so patient model....

Good attempt only I think you shoped the right side on the picture wrong, it seems she is missing some cheekbones.

But it's looking much better.

HI ZAK

Unfortunately in the roomi am working in its not possible to have a 1.5 metre gap. its such a shallow room. Its a real hassel for me but its just the way it is at the moment until i find another location

Hahah wild hair, we actually frizzed it a bit to give it a more natural look. It seemed to look much better. i didnt want to have this "plastic, hair stuck together as one peace" look for this particular shot.

thanks again for feedback

ken

Hi Ken, again another great shot, I can really imagine flipping the pages and seeing it.

Excuse my almost useless opinion, but the first thing I noticed was that little bit of fluff on Gf's jumper. Right at top centre (if she wasn't turning her head). For some reason it just took my eye and distracted a little... Petty aren't I?

Hi Ken

Very nice shot indeed. Can I ask, whats was your lighting arrangement/set up? I'd love to take a couple of shots of my 'missus' this way but only have my home to do this and don't as yet have any studio lighting.

Thanks in advance.
