If you are right here about something, then it is her beauty....

Any suggestion..... would be for now to be carrefull of the sun..... making a shaddows on her face could be distraction, you could take some shoots outside during clouds marking the sun whith good exposition you could show her beauty even more or wait for sun to be less strong in the later afternoon orduring early morning..........well I think you know all that......

Apart from using a larger aperture to add a little bokeh to the background. I would say you have made a very good job. Nice exposure - pleasant composition. Good photo.

You could easily work on the specular highlights too if you want to just finish it off. Of course you can lens blur the background in Photoshop too, not forgetting.

I think composition is basic, but basic works

I would also suggest using a wider apture to blur out the backing and put more focus on your model.

Also try shooting on an overcast day to produce a softer lit subject and less highlight intensities. If you have assistance try throwing in a reflector to balance light and stop any harsh shadows that may form on the face or body bringing out unwanted crevaces and curves

All in all its a nice shot.

Maybe I did not understand the thread here, but my point was to the next shoot you will have. This is a test shot and I was thinking that you were asking, what should be aware of for the next time.

To improve this one....well they said it all.

Good Points,

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"I see where I may have done things differently. I attempted to use fill flash to reduce contrast and there for could only increase shutter speed to my maximum sync speed of 250. However, I could have my highest shutter speed, larges apeture, and used highspeed sync for flash. This would have allowed for a shallow dop and still reduced harsh shadows.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Thank you
