    @nellacphoto - Colin, I just openly take in a compact camera, in this case the Pentax MX-1. Having said that, I was the Chair for the group who ran Frankie's fan club in the 1970s so I was with plenty of people who are well enough known. Plus the venues seem to have accepted photography these days, only getting iffy if we try to being in DSLRs with huge lenses.

    Camera club shoots can be quite difficult, with too many people vying for their turn and too many contradictory requests for the model, so you've done well here to get what many would regard as an unusual lighting setup for a female portrait. However, i like that film noir style and it could do with, if possible, returning to and working with a little more.

    The model does look a bit bored, so talk to her and try to motivate her to become involved in the process. That would lift the expression. I would also crop the top of the image to remove all that blank black space. I would also ask whether the arms were needed in the shot, as they are effectively disembodied from the main area of interest. After that, the image is IMHO much stronger. Finally, there are areas of black and clothing just merging without a clear boundary and it might be worth thinking about some lightening of those areas to give a little separation.

    But for all of that, the basic idea is there and it would be well worth while following this up with further shoots. Hope that helps!

    I really like the portrait, but I'm not liking the background so much. It's very defocused, which is fine, but still quite distracting.

    The lens is great Bobby, but sadly only on loan to review so I'll be saying farewell to it soon!

    @clicknimagine - This is a new version that I did last light, but it was indeed worked previously.
