    The light is realy good, I think the shadow could be cloned out, and maybe a bit of dof aswell. But I reckon it is good as it is.

    I like it too.

    Not sure about her 'underneath' leg though, just doesn't look right to me.

    Hi Mario,

    A few small remarks:
    The shadow in her eye at the right side of the picture is to dark.
    Her hand on her knee is finger spread, I would suggest to keep the fingers more closed,
    If possible I would place a older style of telephone to match better in the surroundings,
    But overall a very good set up and attractive model!

    I agree which Hams, perhaps if you put the source light at 7 or 8 o'clock or the face of the mode about 20 to his right, the shadow of the eye will disappear.

    After all. Verny nice shoot.



    Sorry for my English.

    Regards.

    Somehow, the picture would match the title if she were looking at the phone as if waiting for it to ring...

    Pretty tough crowd! I agree that the legs look odd. The light is good and creates a nice atmosphere in the image.
    Care to add any details on your setup?
    Thanks for posting.

    Hi Mario,

    While I'll never pass up the opportunity to look at a picture of an attractive gal, I'm afraid this has quite a few issues I would have addressed.

    I would have removed the curtain tie back which is dangling behind the chair
    I would have used a longer focal length, this says 24mm, which on D7000 is about 36mm FFE, because you are so close at this focal length, the over emphasis of the knees and legs and those spread fingers is really attention grabbing
    I would have moved her in relation to the hard overhead lighting to avoid the nasty bump shadows on her 'underneath leg' as Sharon describes it
    Also that regarding her left cheek and eye as Hans and Franky said
    I would clone out the shelving in top right corner

    But you are not me and you may feel differently about some, or all, of these things

    I am guessing you shot available light with a bright single bulb overhead, the normal room light, plus that standard lamp behind.

    For me, this kind of result proves why the lighting for a portrait needs to be properly managed and trying to make do with room lighting just doesn't work - I have tried a few times and my results were even worse than this especially in restaurants when out for a meal.

    I hope that's not too harsh and is helpful,

    Have a guess :)

    Re: Call Me .....

    Hi Mario,

    Nice shot - I thought is was very artistic

    With regards to the "dead eye" - if you're going to use Rembrant lighting it pays to simply ask the model if she can see the flash with both eyes; if she can then you'll avoid dead eye like this.

    No Not at all Dave, just have to receive CC's like yours to learn more....I do not mind my images being CC'd as I consider photography as a never ending learning art....just have to absorb all your helpful CC's to get more better as a Photog Thank You & Cheers!
