My first real attempt at high key studio photography with my new lighting studio set up.

Elemental Gemini 250W head in left hand side of the lastolite on half power, octabox / softbox to camera right on half power.

In PP I also reduced the saturation slightly to mute the colours ever so slightly.

I'm still trying to get to grips with this kind of photography as landscape and seascapes are more in my comfort zone - but I'm enjoying the challenge!

Camera:Canon 5D Mk II

I feel you've done well here Michael. It's a section of photography I know little about, yet I feel you could of taken the picture at the same level as the child, similar level as your image 'tunnel vision'. IMO.

Good point Phil, thanks. I think the look I wanted to get from this image was of the model looking up to me with the intention being a bit more sense of scale if that makes sense.

I must say, the hardest part I have found is getting people to pose naturally without giving a 'posed feel' if that makes sense!

Nothing quite beats a smile from a child and a very pretty one at that, she'll break a few hearts as she gets older with these lovely eyes.
Photographing people is always hard, talking is always a distraction for them, the more relaxed you are the more they will be too.

All the best,
Dougie
