Make peace doll

About this time last year I took on a commission for an event abroad. I can't exactly remember what the event was for but this was an image that was supposed to go with the promotion.

I took this image with a slant on purpose which is usually not typical of my style when doing images like these. I thought it complimented the models pose.

You can probably tell that my knowledge of lighting then wasn't that great as I haven't used the lights properly as I would like to.

i like the light and color.

i like the vignette
I like the fact that lighting is very subtle, maybe a reflector to bounce a bit of light back onto her left arm would have helped.

But still a lovely composition and capture, a likey for me smile
