This is my work colleague and good friend Pam or as we like to call her "Glam Pam." She is great fun and always smiling. We set up two lights for this one in a very small area (in her hallway). Silver brolley on one light to the right and because of lack of room I had to use the barn doors and opaque diffuser on the other light placed to the left. I would have preferred the soft box but there really was not enough room. This image was to test the lighting for shadow. It was the first one I took.

Hi janeez. Good portrait - little bit blown out left shoulder and might have overdone lightning up in PS, or you could have reduced exposure compensation as it is RAW file. Still a good attempt at first time, and i had to keep practicing with my kids until i got my lighting right. Keep up the work, we never stop learning. Hope above helps. Ossie. Sorry, meant to add not sure if it's my monitor but picture looks slightly blurry - tip when doing still portrait is to use a tripod does help in getting sharp shots.

Not the first portrait, just the first one of the day.

Lovely portrait. Well done. Lets your interpretation of a lovely girl come through. Photography can get too technical at times
and this can spoil the fun. Just my opinion !!!
