By PCarman
My mates wife , managed to get her to sit for first time , as a little conscious but she was hugely pleased with result and a bit of a confidence boost . shame she wore black but did a little to light it up ?

Like John, I also like the portrait, very natural and good lighting used here.
I am not not at all experianced in this type of photography, but I have the impression that the image get's even better if the hands are not included. (don't ask me why...)

Aw thank you all , she will be very pleased , took a long while to have her picture taken but response elsewhere is fantastic , well known lady and good friend. agree about the hands , i think raising the height of where i was with the lens did help prospective in another take . was only a few inches, but we loved the look she gave here as it is her , i will crop, was tricky to adjust it without throwing rest f it out . ongoing will work with the back light and adjust seating and try a honeycomb of hand made type . pleased with the look of it

She has every reason to be pleased with this picture - she is warm and kind-looking. And beautiful.

All black is fine, a limited colouir palette works well, and it has the look of the Old Masters.
Good work both of you Smile

You all know the road iv been on , iv had to try out the ideas but the simplest work great , it's just been finding out what did and didn't and iv had fun getting there as some of you know , the old masters look and feel is what i've been after , i'll stick to this way and play about from there with what i've got now , maybe a bit of texture and reflection to back drop ?? will see what works and what doesn't xx gotta buy a new lens for the set up iv got , i think the 50mm now i understand the math and why

As I've written on another of your posts, I reckon that 50mm is a good decision. Looking forward to the results!
