A rather soft looking portrait, one which would benefit from warming colour. This could be done quite simply , whether it be flash, reflective discs, or simple kitchen foil. The vignetting is a personal choice, some like it some loathe it.

Regards Nathan.

For more advice see ePhotozine Techniques, a wealth of advice and expert tuition.

hi simon
thats a realy good first simon well taken.
what nathan means about kitchen foil is that you can make a diy reflector iv used this quite a lot and it works, simply cut out a disc from a piece of cardboard not to small though have a look on website for diameters and cover it with kitchen foil there you have it one reflector which can be used from differnt angles around your subject to reflect the light on to your subject which will give differnt lighting affects hope that helps.
