    I agree, the lighting looks great on the first shot. It looks like you broke the rule of the shoulders being square with the camera, but it definitely works with that shot.

    leila: Probably just a big softbox behind/above the photographer. I often use that setup myself. It gives nice and smooth skin and reveals the cheek bones quite a lot. But oh well I'm not the photographer... Sorry. :p

    I'm not sure if I like how you cropped picture 3. Her arms feel a little too cut off. And there is not texture left in her skin, or at least none on this small version.

    I use a 2-light setup, the key light is placed high and to my left (for some reason, I find it hard to shoot with the key light to my right), and a fill light just below it.

    Rabieshund: yeah, the small version gives out that look. I too was a bit skeptical with the way I cropped it. thanks for taking time to read this thread.

    once again, thank your for the comments and suggestions..
