    Okay. This is my first attempt at portraits. Now before you flog me to death, just remember this is a bloke with no lights or reflectors. The shots might also have gone a little grainy because I shrunk them and dropped the quality for posting.

    *Tries to think of some other excuses but fails - d'oh!

    Good job getting such an even light, how did you do that?. Did you try other angles where she is not so centered? All in all very good for a first attempt.

    I waited until 4:30 in the afternoon when the light was coming into the house. We have "light" curtains, if you know what I mean. I find that I can't help but centre portraits... especially kinda formal ones where they are directly in front of me.

    Took loads of shots.. some side on with her seated with a couple of different swords (believe it or not.. lol).

    Thanks Elsaspet. Maybe I should have chosen a different first one or summat - like Cruizin said - something less centred.

    Thanx folks. I was pretty pleased with them, given I have no real equipment. I was really happy with her eyes. They seem so darn clear.

    Oh, it's my lovely wife by the way. She is an excellent model - the only time I've ever seen her compliant in my whole life - lol.
