My first upload of Joanna, Dave McGirr's lovely, Polish wife. She was such a willing and natural model. Thanks to Dave & Joanna for providing all the props.
This is also my first proper portrait using studio lighting. I was quite delighted with my Canon 1.8, 50mm lens too.
Comments / critique welcomed.

Almost impossable to get a bad shot of her wasn't it?
I did manage it though

Excellent portrait!

Roy must be frustrated - he said the same thing on my portrait of Joanna...

Nice one of Joanna Colin. Did she do any poses that look bad?

A great studio image Colin - well done.

and a safe shot than landscape, as there is no water to wash your camera in ................. : )

great connection there with your model, Colin.

Im not always a fan of landscape orientated portraits, with the sitter so central in the frame, but the position of the arm and hand probably helps balance it a little.

Hi Colin
I'm so glad that you are still my honest and friendly commentator, whom I owe most of my image on this site.
Thank you!

The lady on the portrait is very charming and attractive, the photo looks great.

Now, after almost a year spent at the EPZ University, I can see something in the shot I would do differently, had I a privilege of working with this super model.

All the best to you and yours.
