    Well I picked up my new lights tonight and I wanted to try a few maternity shots.

    These were shot with one strip box about 2 feet away.
    Any C&C welcome.

    I really enjoy the lighting, but she seems a bit soft in the face.

    The lighting is great, well done. And she looks great too :D

    It looks like there is room to bump the levels up without blowing any highlights.

    I really like the lighting. I would like to see more details in the face also.

    I don't mean to sound weird, but I think a slightly higher camera POV would have a little also. With it being lower, and where the light is falling, it's making her breast look kind of weird, kind of elongated. Naturally, being preggie will make the ladies breast larger than usual, but hers look oddly elongated. It's also slightly bringing unwanted attention to the little bit of fattyness on her upper arm by her arm pit.

    I think either a slightly higher camera POV or a little more to the camera left as to avoid a full on side profile of them, just a little bit I bet would help a lot.

    I would also like to see all of her fingers on her closest hand also.

    These are minor nitpicks, but over all I love it, especially her calmness feeling.

    Well done
