Shot in the model's long and narrow front room in her flat. Lighting was two elinchrom's, one with softbox and one with shoot-through brolly.

All constructive thoughts appreciated.

As far as I can see, the lighting & tone is A O K, the model pose is OK, but her expression is lacking something.

If it were mine i'd crop it much higher, a cut just below the knee's is not a good place to stop. Either get the feet in, or crop at the waist or shoulders.

Hi Abel, this is quite good. Not sure of the crop here. I would have cropped just above the knee`s since the feet are missing and just a little closer to the head but not too much.

You say you were shooting in cramped narrow condition `s. I often find at times like this just one light will work great.

Sometimes two lights can flatten the shot a little too much. A single well positioned translucent brolly often dose the trick.

Thank you all.

I did take a series in tis pose, starting at full length and working in to headshot. This was the one I liked best because of the hair, which was being blown with a hairdryer.

Model's expression may have something to do with the fact that she has enormous braces on her teeth, lol.

Will try with single lighht next time. I guess just cos you have the equipment you don't always have to use it ALL :O)
