A couple of firsts in this one.

First time I've had a model in my Leather jacket.
First time with a full frame digital.
First time with Studio Lighting.
First time someone might suggest I stick to Landscapes Smile

Asked Ashlie to pull the collar round because she's a dress size 6, 5' 2" in height, I'm the size of a shed and she's wearing my jacket.

Well, I have to congratulate all of those excellent and extremely proficient portrait togs out there. Because I found the session extremely difficult and wasn't expecting anything else. So many more things to learn.

Thanks to EPZ's Horse aka Adrian Crook for so much help. Many thanks to Ashlie for her unending patience.

So it's all yours now...give it your worst.

Now where's Elgol on the map? Smile

the first hurdle is done, did you enjoy it or has it put you off completely..??

And seeing as its your first time (is there an equivalent to losing your... um.. no won't go there Wink I'll be gentle....

Good eye contact but your lighting is a wee bit on the harsh side (possibly a little high and too far away?), she's got shadows wear a girl really doesn't want them (eyes). Now feel free the kick me Smile

The hands are spot on for me, just add to the picture, I think if she'd not pulled the collar up it would have been missing something.

Great look aswell

Never done a model shoot - the very idea scares me Wink Qudos to you for giving it a go, and the results are pretty damn good too!
