When ?

By chase
I don't get many opportunities to photograph my Granddaughter these days,she is always far too busy to sit under the lights I grab her when I can.
Taken with a B&W in mind but I liked it 'almost'. & she does this expression so well.

Lit with 2 studio flashes,one camera left & one on the bg, a silver reflector just in front of her.

Thanks for taking the time to look/comment.

Nearly time for Santa,I hope you are all ready,chimneys swept & mince pies baked Smile

I like the blush on her cheeks, like an old hand-painted photo.

I think your very lose to what I think your after. Very Vermeer in looks. My only real comment is I feel I want to turn her round ever so slightly as her shoulder line cuts the image. The processing and look is spot on (wouldn't expect anything else).

I thought this would be good, even in thumbnail view, she has a pose which puts me in mind of the painting 'Girl with a pearl earring' Vermeer?
