2nd Home studio session

By SteveBaz
This is another shot from Ďourí second attempt at portraiture in the home studio (conservatory, some curtain material & selection of household standard lamps).
Still working on the lighting & this time moved little further away for head & shoulders shot & some eye contact with Jean.
Straight from the camera as I havenít the first clue about PS!
Comments & guidance welcomed
Thanks for looking

This is a nice shot - perhaps a little more thought about the framing and the format would help to achieve excellence. A pity you have just sliced off the top of her hair and also there is a bit too much empty space to to the left. I would use a portrait or square format here. A

Improving with each upload. Nice shot. Skin has a few hot-spots implying that the lighting is too strong and shot is slightly overexposed. The light is tending towards harsh (note the strong shadow just under chin on backcloth). Like the head and shoulders view, and the perspective seems better too, than the previous upload. Carry on doing the same. You may also want to experiment with lighting the backdrop to improve separation.

Look forward to future uploads.

as stated the lighting looks "too bright" with the skin tones looking too light. turning the camera to produce a portrait image rather than landscape may also have helped.
