First attempt with a model for a "mood" shot. Candlelight was the only light source in a dark room with a reflector to light up opposite side of her face. Model was able to produce real tears to fit mood of photo. Comments and criticisms welcome to help future attempts.

Any model who can do that to cue, is either a decent actress as well or just plain gifted. Keep hold of her. I like the shot and the mood, though I actually find the glass distracting, and there's a hint of a purple tint to the nearside of her face?


Cheers, Dave.

Looking at her eyes, you can see the candle and the reflector.

My suggestion is to put the candle very close to her and the reflector back far enough to fill but not to over fill the candle. Perhaps the reflector should be next to the camera. To my eye, the far side of her face is brighter than the near side and that defeats the moodiness you're going for.

Real tears? That's amazing and they came out very good. I really like the lighting and it's a good capture. The white balance looks a little too warm for my tastes.

Too tight of a shot. You can hardly tell it's a wine glass and her eyes are too near the edge of the frame.

I like this one. Really sets the mood.
