First shot with my new toys oops business tools.
A very quick setup in the studio and lit with just a single beauty dish.
Yep I know needed more dof but was wanting to see the quality at ISO50 and so had the lights set for higher but had to shoot at F4.5 as it happened so quick.

2 shoots in the studio over the weekend so really looking forward to using it in anger Smile

A round face in a square format.

It's not the beautiful face that gives the photo its punch. For me it is the posing, the off centre positioning that the eye and the slightly pointing chin have that fills the diagonal of the square that make it interesting.

I think that the bottom right part of the picture is dark though. I wonder how it may had looked like you you made half a step back and she was light from a bit more far so her neck was getting more light.

Many thanks to Ian for the award.
The dark at the bottom id due to me not reading a manual first. Just found out the 5dMkIII when used with studio heads needs to be synced at between 1/60th - 1/30th sec so unfortunately the shutter was too fast. Too used to my 7d.

I like this image Richard especially the depth captured in her eyes - also particularly the lighting on the cheekbone. I can see the darkness in the bottom right but it doesn't detract too much - for me anyway. Lou

Love it Richard. A mile away from the normal sterotyped shots but a super imposing portrait.

Stunning portrait work Richard - love the comp, skin tones and eye contact. The dark shadow bottom rt doesn't draw my eye particularly and the technical explanation is interesting and something to note.
