Flat Lighting

Hi Brian, interesting shot in that it shows a good relationship between the model, photographer and us the audience. However the flat umbrella/softbox lighting does nothing for me. This same set-up would be improved IMO by merely moving one of the unitís closer/farther then the other and adding a hair light for separation from the BG. Also, as you have a very nice wide-angle lens on that E-3 it would be interesting to show what it can do! This subject matter would become much more dynamic and dramatic with a lower/wider perspective IMO. This shot does show promise though. Keep it up Brian. Regards, R.

Many thanks for the advice Randall - this was a quick shoot with limited time but I know what you mean.

Cheers

I think what you have here is perfection!
Great shot and your lighting is unique.

Cheers Denny - thanks for the kind words. I did like the expression on the model's face and I think the image look has more to do with the treatment I chose from Lightroom.
