Have you photoshopped this? If not she has a flawless complexion and she should be very proud! By the way she has a great pose too - you sure are one lucky guy!

Hi everyone, I'm gonna try answer all your questions at once:

1. Yes, she has been photoshopped, but the lighting and makeup minimised skin imperfections quite a bit too.

2. I am very lucky, I have a beautiful fiance, but this isn't her

3. The shot was taken in a professional studio with three studio strobes(covered with softboxes). One on either side of her and one above her head to seperate her hair from the background. The strobe in the right was set to a higher power then the right hand strobe. An incident meter was used to determine an exposure of 125 at F8, ISO200 (There was a Nikon user who didn't have ISO100)

4. All the above was set up by a pro photographer who was teaching me portrait photography, I just rocked up and took the photo. I found the most difficult job was telling the model how to pose. One of the photographers was quite harsh and ubrupt with her and to be honest, it put me off this sort of photography a bit.
