    Well I don't always get this lucky. She has her days where she'll automatically cover her face when I walk into the room lol. Just give it some time, they'll open up sooner or later :wink:

    Lets see if I can figure out how you lit this lovely image.

    Natural light or reflector from camera left, light through umbrella from above slightly camera right. A light, low camera right pointing up into the umbrella with a snoot?

    Strobes or continuous lights?

    Thanks, Keith! Would you believe it, I didn't use any kind of flash. This is all natural light. The sun from behind, shining on window and reflecting back on Sophie :biggrin:

    Cool! So much for the catchlights in her eye's.
    Describe what is behind the umbrella and to lower camera right to produce the catchlights.

    I like this type of skin tone...not over-saturated and accurate

    Hi Francis - GREAT shot, she is beautiful. Like Keith I was trying to figure out the lighting - amazing natural light without flash! What caused the catchlights?
     
  17. Beautiful picture, the only one willing in my family any more to be photographed is the doggie... everyone else ignores me with the camera! Beautiful model.
     
  18. what a GORGEOUS capture!!!

    Thank you very much, Leah! It was taken mid-day when the sun was directly to her back, shining thru the umbrella. The window in front of her is 6ft tall by 5 ft wide. The catch light is actually a reflection off of a patio table that we have in front of the window. This wasn't a planned shot, just a candid that happend to work out :biggrin:
