This one is one of my latest studio works, the image was planned as a headshot style portrait for her website. Like to find out what your thoughts are on the look and style of the image.

I don't know the "look" of the website, which might make a difference.

Couple of thoughts: The lighting is interesting, but not what I would expect. You might consider more light on her neck to help erase those creases there. Also, with such a bright yellow background, her portrait is somewhat over-powered. Also, you might want to crop in tight because most internet portraits want to be mostly face, and not so much dark clothing included.

I would have a close look at the image and note where is in focus and where is not.
DOF seems very shallow
Not sure about the back ground, it seem to lend a colour cast to her face
Unless photo used for mug shot, eg driving licence use. Try different pose a hand up to the face. Just about to eat a choc bar. Putting on lip stick
Depends what You-and or her want the finished image to be
Ideas I post is how I would do an image to get the result I would be looking for. This may not work for you

Thank you for sharing.

The image is the basis of a standard corporate type shot. I agree with the other comments that’s have been made. The stand out points for me are the background colour, which is a bit wishy washy and really doesn’t complement the red hair of the model. Also, the image is lacking in sharpness, which is a problem if it has a going to be viewed online.

Thanks,
