Hi - my name is Richard Jackson and I run my own photography business called Richard Jackson Photography. I have a 'high street' studio in Poynton, Cheshire, UK. As well as having a portrait and product studio I also have a gallery where I have my landscapes for sale. I photograph portraits, weddings, landscapes and commercial work, including PR and products. I also teach photography.

    Thanks Nike55. I know what you mean about the white space. Before posting this full frame version I cropped it to just Adam and his customer, so as to remove the white space, but when you compare the two, this larger one is more interesting. Yes it breaks the rules, but for that I think it a better shot. After all, this is a working salon, and not posed (I went in, asked to take the shot and took it) I couldn't move anyone or anything around. I wanted to capture the atmosphere and mood of the room. If I'd shot from the other side, the light would have been behind me meaning I would have cast a shadow, and the light wasn't quite as good - no real shadows to speak of. (If you go on my website under portraits you can see both crops.)

    Thanks for the feedback - this is one of my favourites from that shoot and really pleased with the colour tone.

    Very nice lighting and b/w conversion. One small critique, if I may be so bold, and I could be wrong here (often!) - it looks like you've blurred out the background, as the lines closer to the model are more pronounced, and as a result it looks like you've caught the hair on the back of her head (top of shot). But a very nice shot and model!
