    Thanks, as I said this was a bit of a 'miss shot' as in the back lights didn't fire. If I upped the contrast too much on this I would have totally blown out the dog. I just loved the mood of this one though.
    Thanks again

    thanks so much. My speedlight set up is still so hit and miss but I just love it when it goes right! Smile

    Thank you!!! Just to let you know, Ant used to be a slightly chubby, flabby chap! He has worked so hard to look like this!! Smile

    This is a nice shot of a gorgeous girl...and I have to say I am very jealous about that Chaise Lounge...I want it!!
    I think the main issue here is the colour balance which in my opinion washes the shot out a little. I would also have added a bit more space around the image to allow more head room
    and the abilty to straighten things up a bit. The shot also needed a bit of clearing up on the left side.
    I hope you approve of my mods.

    Thank you. This was shot using a speedlight through a Westcott softbox. Still experimenting with off camera speedlights Smile

    the daylight you see in the background is coming through the patio windows behind her Smile

    Tony the background wasn't changed in pp. I think what has happened with the hair was a result of light spilling in from the background strobes. Many thanks for your comments though.

    thanks Warren, I did think of correcting the wonky horizon but I think its not so important in portraits as it is in landscapes etc... I guess its a personal thing. H x

    Thanks Rach. She really is a great model isn't she. She just came with a bunch of girls for a group shoot but she just really stood out, photographically speaking!! She is only 13!
