i like this attempt and it is good as there are no shadows on her face, although two improvments for me are her shadow on the wall ( unless this is part of the image, then i think it could look good sticking out more) and the top of her head and her hand or cut off a tiny bit, only those two improvments otherwise it is good Smile

I really like the pose and expression (love the dress!!). I think I agree with Perry, about the deep shadows, standing further from the wall would help, but perhaps you didn't have the room.

It always helps to read a few words in the description box telling us if the image is to your liking and if you are completely happy with the results. It may have been you wanted the deep shadows. Smile

I for one, don't mind the shadows at all. I can see from your PF that you have gone for a very contemporary, very modern "candid" (although I realise the shots aren't) style and it is really very much in vogue at the moment. Open any fashion magazine and look at the shots of some of the large spreads in those magazines that are shot by some of the worlds best and most famous photographers, earning thousands of pounds per shoot from big advertising agencies.....and THEY all have this very "shadowed" look, close to walls, almost "rabbit in the headlights" kind of style.....I think you have emulated that superbly. It might not be to everyones taste as its really not the "traditional" and "done" thing, but I very much think its worth having a go at pushing the boundaries, experimenting and seeing what happens. You are clearly happy with this image yourself or you wouldn't have posted it on this site, so as long as YOU like it and it works for what you are trying to capture in the genre you are trying to capture for, then I think you have mission accomplished. This would work very well as a good, modern, magazine fashion shoot. Admittedly, its "audience" will be narrow, but to the ones who get it, I think this works very well indeed. There is a slight lack of sharpness, but not sure if thats down to the processing, the camera or just that it was on camera flash in darkness and has caused noise....its no biggy and actually, to a level, adds to the image. But the tight crop, the side on pose, the "rough" feel of this.....excellent, really excellent!
