Not sure about her expression, but the light is incredible.

That is a good point - what is her expression?
Mellow Thoughtfulness?
What are those people over there thinking about me surrounded her with flashguns on tripods?

Thanks for your comment Smile

Thanks for the mod Rob.

Its making me think about the lighting - in one way your mod is better, brighter etc. But in another way it is not realistic cos the main light is behind her. The shadow of her nose does not make sense, nor does the light on the side of her head rhs.

So now I am not sure how I should have lit it to get the best out of the ambient light.

Maybe the SB800 with Lightsphere should have been placed on the (your) right rather than left, as the sun seems to be able to light the left side. Either that, or keep the lighting setup you had here and add a reflector to the right side to bounce back light from the sun and the SB800. I actually quite like this though. Maybe you could have turned down the power of the backlight a little bit.

Models face requires more fill, and the ambient is brighter than the models face. Suggests increasing shutter, and using a wider aperture. There is a lovely golden light on the model. The right side of the models hair and face (camera right) the light from the flash is "white", and perhaps a gell would help next time. May be worth trying a FP sync shot so that you can increase speed over 1/250th to reduce ambient further.

Great shot, and all the above and relatively minor.
