    Well I got to finally put together what I have been visualizing since I got into people photography. My beautiful wife of 5 years is only a few weeks from the technical due date. But here in AZ, the heat causes them to come a little faster.

    Lighting setup is a single flash head with a 20x20 softbox.
    Converted to B&W using the channel mixer.

    She is glowing here, and the soft lighting really sets it off. The B&W is perfect.

    Beautiful job! :D I'm so glad you shared this one.

    I'm not sure I follow. There are quite a few adjectives to describe the emotion portrayed but I don't think bored would be one of them. :scratch:

    I think she looks whistful (is that a word?) or daydreamy. I love the black and white and the lighting in this photo. You're a wonderful portrait photographer when you stay out of the desert long enough :wink:

    This is a very classical pose. i've said it before and I'll say it again, this is a gorgeous shot overall. For a slightly different view, I'd have her chin tilted down a bit more, but as you can see from my pregnant-wife-photos, that seems to be my style. Having her chin up here gives her that classical look. This looks almost like sculpture. The angle is great too, as it really flatters her form without overemphasizing anything.

    Bravo, mate.
