I was commissioned to do some profile portraits for a charity a few weeks back and my friend here helped out. Just before we started I used her to test out the lighting outdoors. I didn't have my light panel so we both had to find clever ways of using the light.

Anyway one of the fun shots we took actually came out nice and I decided to make something out of it.

Nice shot Jide...
My screen shows things about the shadow in the left-hand side which I dont like, not fun enough for little ol skee, but then thats me smile i'm not really into shots like this. BUT.... Composition is Nice and easy on the eyes... You could have gone a step further and added "Catch-lights" to the eyes.

Unfortunately I won't be able to make it tonight, but my prayers are for everything to be a bangin success smile
