This was shot with the 135L and the 6D and was lit by the AD600.
I draw a blank when it comes to posing.. I kinda like this pose but now I wish I would have had her shift her weight to the other leg.

The picture I'm posting now is the real color of the dress. Looking like I need to invest a few bucks and get a grey card, right? Right now I'm just putting the camera on auto white balance. I have another girl coming over tomorrow, could I get away with taking a "test shot" with her holding a white peice of paper or shoot and fill the frame with a white peice of paper?
Any advice is welcome. Right now it's looking like she had 5 outfit changes and in reality wore one dress!!

All a bit dark and dingy for me. I assume you applied some sort of soft focus to this, personally I think if you just softened the skin and not the whole picture then it would look better.

I love darkness, but here it feel that lighter background would make things better. Even that you use, as it looks, only one light from the side, it appears on the flat side. Reflector would be nice.

Also that fake blur looks fake ;)

Her hand is more in focus than her face, so I think DThriller caught it.

Ya really gotta move those focus point with the 135 at f2. You see a lot of soft images taken with it. Im surprised it hasn't got a untrue reputation for being a soft lens

Also watch out for the dreaded hair ties!!!
