Very good use of light and shadow. I would consider cropping this to a squarer format or possibly get rid of the two light corners at the top, I find they draw the attention away from the main subject.

The idea is great - shows a different way to get a portrait to improve it you need to crop the top to get rid of the light areas. Also you have to consider the overexposed hand and arm so im not sure what lights you were using but you have too much on this side so knocking it up a little from saying 5.6 to f8 or f9 would help. or placing some cloth over the flash or even bouncing it. Try again and see what works for you.

Well done for trying something different.

I don't know what you mean about 5.6, 8 or 9 but I will ask my mum. It was her camera so she might know.

hi

5,6 , 8 and 9 relates to f stops the lower the number i.e 5.6 the more light you let in so if you feel that there is too much light in the picture you knock the fstop up to F8 this reduces the amount of light onto your picture.
