Hi Jeffro
Cant help feeling you missed a trick here with the trireflector.
Maybe its your processing but the shot lacks contrast, punch, and looks a bit under exposed. The great thing about a tri reflector is that it floods the face/ neck with lovely soft light. It makes women of (ahem) a certain age look great because it washes out the wrinkles. It can make young girls look glamorous. Your shot could have been taken with one soft box, so really the trirflector has been wasted. Maybe you did not have enough power going thru the flash-head, or maybe it was too far away from the trireflector, or maybe the model was too far away from the trireflector.
Have a look here https://www.ephotozine.com/u27182/gallery/632911
all 3 shots of Chloe were taken using a trireflector.
I Like the expression very relaxed and happy, and great eye contact, you obviously had a rapport with your model.

I don't know what a trireflector is but this image rocks for me. Super lighting and pose.

Hi Martin,

Thanks for the comments, I was using two soft boxes but I think they may have been underpowered. I haven't done any post processing at all, this shot is out of the camera!
