I really like the color version better. But I am a sucker for a pair or pretty brown eyes!

I also prefer the color version of the shot above.

Here are a few that I took, back when the trees still had color on them.

Alex

nie color and balance of light. Two things to remember.

shots 2&3. #2 has hand clipped. #3 is clipped at the elbow and at the elbow. this kind of breaks all those portrait rules. I think they would have been much better if they were 3/4's and from the waist up with no clipping

2nd thing-- flip the camera. Shoot in portrait orientation for these types of shots

Ok thanks for the tips; I'm still relatively new to portraits (normally a sports shooter) so I'll put those tips to use next time out!

Here's another of Summer. I was just playing around with the camera to get settings right and snapped this one. I know it's a profile but I just seem to like just about everything about it.

All of these were lit with a 580exii in a 24" softbox. The one in my first post also has a speedlite in a shoot thru umbrella (a little too hot IMHO) below her face.

They are also all shot on white seamless BG with the obvious exception of the one in the chair.
