    Impromptu portait session, totally unplanned, and done only to while away the time.

    [​IMG]

    Taken with the 50mm 1.8 lens at f2 and 1/125 on a covered bridge in heavy rain - and she wanted me to document how windswept her hair was!

    Some will recognise her, of course ;).

    Those photos I took with fill flash did not work out well at all. I can't seem to get fill flash right at all...

    Some how the image grabs my attention, it's the look in her eyes, the slight lean forward

    You did a good job, it gains the viewers attention:wink:

    Now write a detailed cutline to go with it...and you'll have it made

    Very nice shot LaFoto!! I really like the lighting you used, and pose of the model.

    A cutline is a detailed mini story of the image you took.

    I was an editor not too long ago, so now every time I see an image I look for a cutline

    In short its a blurb of information, newspapers and magazines use them. It adds a bit of detail to the image for the reader.

    I'd like to know more about the subject and how the image was taken...IE: cutline

    Sorry for the use of news lingo:wink:

    Well, a) Gimp is, of course, right as to who my favourite (and only, for that matter) model is.

    And b) I fear I don't know the lingo for a cutline.

    All I can tell is that we went into Hamburg as a family to meet with the other part of the family (husband's brother+wife+daughter and f-i-l), but they hadn't arrived yet and we got surprised by a heavy rainfall. So we "fled" underneath this covered bridge...

    [​IMG]

    ...and waited for both: the rain to be over and the others to arrive. And "my model" complained about her hair being all ruined by the wind and rain, but I said, hey, let me ... And so I took the photos.

    In answer to J7CK's question, yes, there are others without fill flash, at f2, but her face was so that her "far eye" is blurred in all those. Not sure if that is acceptable in portrait photography at all? There were only two out of the five I took that have both her eyes in focus.

    I like the shot, Corinna. There is a lot of sharpness (in my beginner opinion), which usually doesn't work for me in portraits, but in this one her skin is so smooth and nice it doesn't matter. You get the detail, and she still looks beautiful! You are a good photographer for balancing this photo, and you are very lucky to have such a pretty lady so willing to work with you.

    Her good looks wouldn't happen to be a genetic thing would they? :) I'm just asking...
