Joanne 4

By bulldozer  
Another shot from the session at the weekend. Taken in a makeshift studio in a front room no bigger than 3mx3.5m!

This was the first time that my friend Joanne had done anything like formal modelling and it was quite a learning curve for both of us!

Hope you like it. Comments and feedback welcome as ever.

HI John
This is much better than the last one. I like the more relaxed pose, and the more relaxed expression. I think she would be happier with this shot.
Couple of problems, glare from the background, spoils the exposure.
Try taking a shot using only the background lights,ideally your model should be in silhouette. Then you know you have no glare.
Eye contact, Just missed it I'm afraid. If you want a shot without eye contact, then it must look intentional. strong eye contact would have lifted this picture.
I think you would get a more relaxed look if you tried seating your model, especially if she is inexperienced.
