    This picture is completely unedited. C&C on the lighting techniques, and also the picture in general. I'm still trying to figure out proper lighting so help me out!

    Edit: Soft box at full to left. Bare at 3/4 to right.

    Hmmmm not bad at all; I think it might be a little under-exposed generally ~1/2 stop, and a small fill light/reflector to illuminate the area of her chest beside her right leg a little bit might not hurt. The only major point I see is that the image needs to be levelled.

    Yeah I agree that area is too dark but I have no reflectors yet. I took that picture in RAW so I'll raise it a half stop and re-post it. Anyone else have anything?

    I like photos dark, I like this one dark. I'd clear that bit of hair from the subjects face. I'd also force the cat to wear either a tuxedo or scuba gear. All my comments are serious except for my last.
