Stobist setup with some ebay triggers and had my wife stand in. CC encouraged. This is probably my 3rd or 4th time in a studio type setup..so still trying to figure out what these lights do
very nice shot & light setup
Nice lighting, pose and exposure of your subject. However her dark hair could use a bit of hairlight. For me, the background is very busy and she is a little close to the background. Still a very good photo, she really 'has the look'.
I don't know anything about studio's but I like this photo. Do your wife give fashion advice? I could use some. :biggrin:
Something tells me your wife has done some modeling as she really knows how to connect with the camera.
To critique, the detail in her hair is almost completely missing. I agree with Charles on the need for a hair-light, or if shot RAW, maybe a masked Curve or Levels layer with some selective brightening would do the trick. I am also in agreement with Charles on the BG - just a bit too bright, but I do love the way the BG colors compliment her shirt.
IMO this is a very good image - nice work by the "model" and the photographer. :smile:
You are too modest, my friend! What an amazing shot! The background rocks, the lighting is spectacular and your wife, if I may say so, is stunning! I really like what you did.
