Introducing Carly

By xanda  
This is Carly, who will be leaving Horsham for Wales soon. In addition to being a lovely model, Carly is also an excellent photographer and she will be studying photography at university. I'm hoping to squeeze in another shoot with her before she goes Smile

Carly's shoot marked a long overdue change in the way I use a camera. I've always relied on Aperture priority with + and - compensation. With this shoot I finally shifted to using full manual control and will continue doing so.

Exposure: f3.5 at 1/100th

Post capture: Cropped slightly, contrast adjusted, selectively softened and sharpened.

Thanks for taking a look. Have a nice day Smile

Pleasing backdrop and pose, complimented by the colours in the clothing and your post-processing.
