Lovely girl, good idea especailly for this time of the year. Main problem is her hair is disappearing into the background. A light from outside the frame could have been shone on to the back of her head, or from below up on to the background to separate the head from the back cloth. Smaller santa hats are available, but I am being cheeky now. click, click

Works for me !! I agree about her hair blending into the background but that's a minor niggle

Thanks so much for the comments and advice. I know I do need a hairlight, have had a similar problem before with dark hair. I will have to get inventive in my tiny "studio" and add to my odd collection of lights Smile

Alternative use for a santa hat! Good shot, but maybe a bit more care with positioning the hat so that the seam is hidden? A very minor niggle!

What a nice provocative pose, with a questioning expression on her face.
I actually like the way her hair is blending into the background seems to add a bit more mystery as to whats behind her.

Good job it is the southern hemisphere - up here she would be extremely cold

I really like this one. The expression is fantastic, and the off-centre crop works well too. Nice one.

i think a fill light for the hair would have improved the shot. often a problem with black background/ single side light source
