Any chance of some critique on this shot . Not bothered about clicks/hearts.

Is it too dark on the models right? Blue lighting too distracting? etc..

I agree with what you've said - plus I think her hair needs more light to seperate it from the BG. She also looks a bit tense.

Cheers Michael. Need to work on portraiture this year, so picking up advice along the way.

Hi Trev.

The highlight in the back light is burning out the face light, hence the dark face. The blue filter to the back would work well, but try and make it less harsh and a sutle lighting to the face will help.

If you have a flah meter, check the background light first and then check the face light, then both together. You will then need to balance the two settings.

If you are using only to lights I would place a gentle reflector to the left to allow a touch more light that side.

Thanks for the input Paul. Some things to think about there.
