What kind of umbrella & flash are you using & how much did they cost?

Excellent use of a speed light with a umbrella.

Love the strong facial expression of the 2nd photo.

She is beautiful.

That looks like a regular 45" shoot-through brolly.

Thanks! Does the brand of umbrella matter?

Not really. The differences in umbrellas are generally more in way of build quality, strength and size. One umbrella of similar type and size will perform its primary function much like any other. Its when you use it every day or wind hits it that you find out whether the extra expense is warranted.

About the only thing I can recommend is that the brolly you buy, if it's one of those convertible from black backed to shoot-through, has a metal ring in the centre of the cover through which the tip of the umbrella goes. Photek's have this design. Avoid designs like Photoflex's, in which the cover is essentially just a hole where they stopped sewing, and the cover is held fast by a pin you screw to the plastic tip: the black covers of these turn to shreds right away, leaving you with a shoot-through only.

Terrific shots, very nice one light work. Really love the sky, pose, and expression in #1 (though the halo does bug me a bit, seems to only be around her head/face).

The light is very soft. Did you reduce highlight exposure in post (LR)?

Very well done. Halo is distracting but still very good photos.
