Paige,my Granddaughter who loves to pose for me infront of the camera...I have to catch her in the right mood though
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
Centre weighted metering from her face.
Raw file converted in C1
Levels adjusted in Photoshop.
Thanks for taking the time to look.
