Believe it or not this was taken on a jetty on Coniston Water last night in the howling wind! I'd arranged a shoot with Carla and despite the wind and rain on the day we decided to go ahead and she suggested she wore her bikini and sun hat, what an ace model! Apart from the wind blowing my light stand over and completely destroying my umbrella we had a good shoot. I suppose it could have been worse though as luckily the flash didn't get blown into the water Tongue

Thanks for taking a look, comments as ever appreciated.

Darren.

Worth the hassle Darren as the light balance and the angle are really very good on this. I like it! Simple, effective and worth the effort!

Thanks Johnny, seems you're on your own with this one though. Considering the conditions I'm pleased with it and you could almost be forgiven for thinking it was a sunny day (IMHO).

Exactly. I like it.

Female/model portraits tend to go one of two ways on this site now.....dont' get any comments or votes or get hundreds because it was shot by a particular photographer who has loads of followers (there are about 2-3 togs with that. Not their fault and not a criticism of them, not at all. Just the way the site works). Strange, but thats how it goes I guess.......

Still quality work fella!

Thanks guys, it's encouraging to get some positive feedback. I know what you mean Johnny and lack of votes doesn't bother me but knowing the conditions I was working in I was particularly pleased with the result.

Thanks for your time.

Darren.

Like the angel of this one Darren, and given the condition the lighting has worked well.
For me the smile which is a little forced has caused some creases in the face, best thing with these is to wait a very short while for the face to relax and than take the shoot.
Regards Richard
