    I've been learning more about my software and trying new tricks. SHE seems to be having as much fun as I am. :biggrin-93:
    Always C&C and (polite) suggestions are welcome.

    Looks like a 1950's soda poster. I like her pose and her wardrobe. Beautiful woman.

    Thanks. :) Rose? This may be a cultural thing but apart from flowers the word rings no bells. :boggled:

    That was the aim, I need to get her a feather duster and reshoot, then add a suitably sexist caption like "Coke makes a girl's housework a breeze!". Thank you.

    Very nice, as usual, GD! I think a little refinement on your lighting might be in order to take this from 'good' to 'great'. Your key is probably about 1/3 stop too bright, and judging by the shadow on her right arm, just a bit lower than might be ideal. Fill camera right would also be desirable; this genre is typically characterized by a fairly bright, relatively shadow-less look. I would actually bring your key camera right, about 30 degrees off of lens axis, and then have a big fill ('big' as in, 72" or so) right on axis, about 2/3 - 1 stop below key.

    I was being lazy and trying to work with my 2 Yonguo flashes instead of taking the time to set up my proper strobes.
