This shot of a friend was taken at her home.

I used an off-camera speedlight bounced off the ceiling and a silver reflector under Sam's chin to fill in shadows under her chin and nose.

It was difficult to place Sam so that the background was photogenic so we took a canvas down from a wall in another room and sat it on a chair behind Sam.

Hello friend, this is a nice portrait, excepting the red line in the left hand side of the frame. Actually the red line is pulling the eyes from the main subject. The red line is disturbing.

This stands out in the gallery. A decent job with the lighting as well.
