    I wanted to bring out the face in this one a lot so we used a dark backdrop. Hope you will like it.

    Not bad, I wish the hair was a little smoother and it seems to be all over the place.

    Off-camera, soft, broad lighting would have helped this immensely. You can definitely tell this was shot with a pretty harsh, small light source. Hair light/kicker as well because even though you're featuring the face with a dark background, it still helps to give some definition of the subject if you have a background at all. In post, I would have healed out the small white bit on the underside of the tip of her nose as well.

    What he said. It looks very "flashy" and harsh. Pretty girl though.

    Thanks for the comments. I agree with you about the lightning. This wasn't a serious shoot. The girl on the pic is my sister and we were just trying things out with the camera. I think it's not a complete disaster, right?

    I dont think its a disaster at all,True he lighting is a little hars but that can be manipulated in ps, but all in all its a good shot you should be proud of.
