I withdrew my previous image from Autosport because I spotted something in it that might be miscontrued. This is the same young lady posing for me. There were lots of DSLR's about, but even more camera phones and very few compacts. Most people were shooting the cars so the youn ladies were quite willing to pose and needed little instruction - although I've just noticed something I would alter here?

Soon be no compact cameras and the antics of many of the DSLR owners suggested to me they should join this site.

EOS 7D with 18/125 OS Sigma. Auto at ISO400 (To record ambient - stand well lit.) - and flash with Sigma 530 DG Super gun and diffuser.

Love the colours and the pose, and the flash seems to have worked well too.
In terms of critique, her face seems small for her body from you angle and the structure behind her head is a tad distracting.
the flash & camera in portrait mode has caused the shadow under the RHS chin/jaw - if you kept the camera in landscape mode this may have been less obvious. Of course an off camera portable softbox would have been even better.
If the aperture wide open, as i wonder if there is more sharpness to be had at a smaller aperture.?

The lighting is, admittedly, direct on camera flash with a diffuser. The situation did not lend itself to the best lighting, but in a show such as this you are carrying everything you need - and that's not a lot.

Aperture would be about f5.6, but a smaller aperture, whilst giving better depth, would have led to either much more obvious flash effects or under exposed areas due to fall off and no ambient recorded.

So, what do you do. In a studio I would have done a lot differently. In the NEC Autosport hall, i had 5 minutes and crowds. I do agree with your general comment though.
