    Shot this today. My daughter.
    Any comments regarding how I can improve this? Love to hear thoughts on the lighting or post process work to improve it.
    Used one 30x40 softbox and white reflector off to the left. Cropped to square.

    EOS20D
    28-135 @60mm
    ISO 100, f8 @ 1/250

    I think it's great, nice work on the lighting.

    One thing that drew my attention right away...is the catch lights. They are too square looking (square soft box, I know). Could maybe be fixed in post, but I don't know what to do to make it look more....natural.

    Thanks mike. :)
    That's one thing I never even took into consideration when I bought the softbox. I guess I'll have to live with it or get in there with the clone stamp tool

    I like everything about it (and now I am no longer surprised why she can't write any letters any more --- she has to pose for daddy all the time, eh? ;)). I have never got as far as setting up a suitable reflector... I think a reflector is THE thing needed... well, I haven't got any softboxes or other kinds of studio lights, either... I wish I had, now that I have seen this one... *musing*

    Classic shot!!! I think the barrette and partial ear are a little distracting.

    Thanks all for your comments. :D
    agree with your coments Craig...maybe a little vignetting would subdue the ear and barrette in her hair.

    I don't mind the square reflections in the eye. I like that. It's a bit overexposed though. If you look at the histogram, you'll see.
