    Westie Chick

    Here's a photo of my neice. I tried to portray a more masculine feel to the photo with the clothes, ladder and harsher shadows than I would normally use for a female portrait. I won't tell you how old she is, but its a heck of a lot younger than the photo implies.

    Mission accomplished - I can't think of anything that would improve on what you're trying to achieve.

    my eye was immediately drawn to the light on her left lower jawline...therefore, while it is a needed fill, I think I might tend to lower it's value by one to one half stop. Other than little bit of bother, I'd leave a near-perfectly lit shot alone.

    Hi Mark, excellent shot! I really like it.
    What focal length was used here?
    Did you blur her hair PP? I guess since you were going for a less feminine look that is OK?
    These are not criticisms, they are inquiries to understand a very good shot.

    Thanks for posting!

    Mark,

    What did you mean by masculine feel? Couldn't that have been accomplished through the model rather than props? They, the props, look a bit too clean to convey a ruggedness I think.

    By the way, nice image, very sharp.
