looks like a "test shot"

time to delve into meaning. conceptualize. evoke.

Be an artist, because the world has enough photographers who take pictures, and needs more that create art.

Have her face you, chest profiles are not fabulous unless you are wearing Victorias.....

The purple Bg is way too much......you will find a color cast ......

Get her relaxed, and smiling..and a neutral BG>


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

A reflector to fill the shadows on the left side of her face might help a bit!
