This is a studio shot of the model Marita. I took this as part of a test shoot for models for our training business www.Phototeach.co.uk run by myself and Mark ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Simms

It's demonstrating beauty lighting where the soft box is almost directly above and in front of the subject and it's aim is to accentuate the cheek bones and flatter the face.

This is soooo much better bigger and it looks a little less sharp or over sharpened small I think? Looks great on a 20" print!

Edit to say thanks for the vote, I hoped for a 6.3 but never mind. With a note on the processing, it did have a small amount of softening but Marita's skin was amazing, here is the straight exposure and contrast adjusted RAW file JPG, before it's been into PS at all.

Waaay too overprocessed for my taste. She looks like a manikin. Of course, that might be what you were going for.
