Paige,my Granddaughter who loves to pose for me infront of the camera...I have to catch her in the right mood though Wink

I wanted to try some really subtle lighting so I used just one studio flash with a nice big softbox attatched placed to the left of the camera with the 'volume' turned right down,just to get it onto her face & a little of the red material.
No JP'ery in Photoshop,the bg is a piece of black velvet & the light is as it was.

F8 manual mode
1/200th sec handheld
ISO 200
F/L 50mm
Centre weighted metering from her face.
Raw file converted in C1
Levels adjusted in Photoshop.

Thanks for taking the time to look.
Janet xx

You have capture her well. I think it is a tad dark and you could brighten her face a bit.

Thankyou everyone.

I tried it a touch lighter on her face Paul & it looked too much for the mood I was trying to printed...looks very different.

Lol Angel ??...far from it,she is such a livewire & a little Monkey ...she can do Angelic though.........for the camera Wink

Despite the setup , its a beautifully un-contrived image Jan.

It reminded of that classic National Geographic image with the veil.

Something to try with those eyes and reds another day...

Thankyou everyone.

Dave...if you only knew how very un-contrived this image Paige had just got out of bed,a quick face-wash,plonked her on a stool & before she knew it I was clicking away with the camera...she has her PJ's on underneath the red shawl Grin
Perhaps one day I will arrange a studio session with Paige as the model,just to see what others could do,she would love all the attention...yep,it's the eyes...I know !

Not so sure about that Nick .... there's no hint of poverty or hardship here. Pretty girl, gooey eyes and a nice bit of post-processing though.
