Another lovely shot of our lady! What can I say she was quite an joyful one to work with. I need to work with more men....hmmm....maybe I might just put one up tomorrow. Let's see....oh I didn't find the time to work on the other lighting image I promised. It was either the image or the England vs Sweden game...you can guess which one took priority.

just amazing shot, and my friend, England - Sweden was great fight. but why can u guys winn? its 35-40 years you wann, Englad should be lucky cause we dont have Zlatan Ibrahimovic playing yestraday, i thin if he played it would be 5-0 for Sweden smile smile smile
Jide Alakija: Very true dude, I don't think the team can successfully play 90 minutes of football.

Great fashion shot! Tosin looks lovely as always!
Dude, considering the quality of England-Sweden game, I dare say you should have worked on that photo you promised. smile
Jide Alakija: Thanks Sinem, but that's NOT Tosin.
Another great one Jide...
Did u use a fan? Nice one
Jide Alakija: Yes I did.

Did u notice how her hair is doing the exact same thing as her eyelashes. I kinda like how u have to start looking at the picture on the right and it tapers off.

This is a lovely shot. I like the way her hair looks with the motion, I only wish it wasn't obscuring her lovely face quite so much, but that is just my personal preference.

I just love this shot, the way it feels, and the way the braids seem to be moving still, wondderful composition for sure.
Hey now this is a very dynamic shot. i really like the U-shaped curves that her braids make. Your cropping is very nice, too. smile
Very professional, great stuff!

As I'm browsing through what I missed, I espeically like this one, I love the lighting and the windy effect, Now try this with someone who doesn't have braided hair that would be a shampoo ad!
