A couple simple headshots.
Very nice! The lighting is working quite well on this model. Did you think about putting just a bit of light either on the hood or the background for a bit of separation?
I prefer the first view. The pose is so stagnant. But I think it's fine when including the "V" formed by her hair. The only other thought I have is to crop very slightly on the left, putting her perfect on center to make the composition aboslutely symetrical. It's SO close now that I want it to be dead on center.
Nice color too. Interesting model.
Good eye on the crop Pete! I'll fix that. And I could have thrown a rim or hair/hood light, but my goal was just to use one light and a reflector underneath.
Thanks for the crit!
Beautiful model. I really like #1. Well done.
Like the first one, has she got a hood or something on her head, i can't quite see on my monitor
Is that one light set up flash through soft box your right?
I was thinking pretty much the same thing.
A background light would have given seperation, and ii doesn't need to be bright. You can keep it low key, just a little bit would be good. If you didn't want seperation, than that's ok, it's your image.
The skin tone does look good though, I think the lighting of the 2nd shot in the 1st one would have been super.
I really like the first one. Its a great portrait shot!! Love the light you used!
I like the second shot. Why is she wearing a hooded sweatshirt?

I was trying to recreate an image I had seen somewhere - a hooded woman, all black, just shot with one light & reflector. I can't remember where the image is or I'd link to it.
Thanks for the compliments!
gorgeous.. i agree though... maybe just a smidge of hair light to separate her and make the hood more obvious... gorgeous shot and beautiful model.x
