Thanks! The key for me has been using big lighting modifiers and bringing them in close to the face.

Here's a 3 light setup and a BTS video>http://youtu.be/MEvg-MHixSs (external link)

Also very nice!
I see your point thanks! Last time in studio I had a close soft box on one side and a huge reflector close at the other side, but seeing your setup, I'll try changing the reflector to a soft box :)

What a beautiful image and woman. I really like how her hair looks.

Sorry for all of my questions - but do you edit your background? I've been looking at videos about post processing but sometimes they mess up the background, if I look closely. But yours are very nice and smooth.

Vanilli: Not sure who you were asking, but I'll take a stab at the question. I often times end up doing post work to my backgrounds. Usually I do it in Photoshop by creating an adjustment layer (curves, hue/sat, whatever the image calls for) and then masking out the subject so that it just affects the background. There are a lot of tutorials on Youtube in regards to masking and I would definitely recommend learning it as it comes in handy for so many different things.

Okay, that makes sense. I use masking all the time. Gotta love layers and masking.

yeah i didn't notice until i got it on my computer this morning. still learning how to properly shoot wide open. i guess she should have had both eyes on a level plane toward the camera, or i should have stopped down. lesson learned though! i'm still very much a noob at portrait photography so i appreciate all the tips i can get.
