Prom Girl

By Wellspring  
Prom dress shoot in lounge
1/250s F/8 ISO 800 (that was a mistake)
SB800 with umbrella, flagged SB600 behind high up
reflector on right and electric fan facing her.
She was a great sport and did not complain when her hair was all blown about!

A very nice shot.

I wondered how it would look cropped so shes on the rhs, which Ive done in the mod. I also toned down the halo round the hair just a little, and recovered some shadow detail in her necklace, dress and eyes. Nor better, just a different pov.

Thanks Willie - it is always good to see how differently a picture can look.

i like your work on the necklace and dress - I should go back to the raw file and see if I can get more detail - it does make a difference.

I am in two minds about the crop though, I decided to crop it unconventionally because it seemed to support the 'attitude' in her pose. But your version is very appealing
