This hidden gem was a simple portrait captured while my daughter was helping me test some new lighting equipment. The shape and light surprised me and it continues to be favorite despite the simplicity.

Reflector for fill.
One AB400 to light the background.

This is spectacular portrait. Her skin is smooth, the lighting is lovely and the diagonal line of her body from bottom left to upper right is very appealing. Nicely done.

Beautiful job lighting this portrait! The pose she is in is very natural and fills the frame perfectly. Great job!

I really, really like the lighting of this, but the way she's tilted back seems a bit unnatural, IMO.
