Dami, A portrait #2

This is another shot of Dami.


The lighting set up here was slightly different from that yesterday. I placed her just by a window (Camera right) and that provided some soft natural light. Held a silver/gold zebra reflector panel (camera left) to remove some heavy contrasting shadows on her face and lit her hair with a speedlite (camera left).


It would be great to hear your comments on either the portrait or the setup. It will give me more of an incentive to write more.

Lovely portrait. Would've expected d hair light from camera right(behind) d her to separate d hair from d dark background. Love d light falling on her right cheek bone n side.
Thumbs Up!
a very good detailed portrait, the eyes draw the most attention. The light set up give it a more natural feel
Nice Portrait , and thanks for sharing your set up.Any modifier used on the speedlight?
