Excellent thought. I was thinking the same thing earlier looking at it. That is one of the things I will do different. I'm going to retake this later this week with her game jersey on.

I choose purple because the school color is purple. I also have one like this, but ungelled barecflash in the wall.

Even if you didn't do a hair light a rim light adding separation for her would do the photo well. It just seems like she kind of disappears into the shadows.
The gel works fine, keep it in there if you re-do the shot. Color adds that extra oomph to it that other photos might not have.

Alden :)
my first gig with the new lighting...got hired to do a shoot for a local cosmetic line, Alden Cosmetics :)

It's good no doubt, but I think you need to get the text on the product without the glare. Just photoshop fix it to black. Since it's the product I think the text would be pretty important. My only problem with it ;)

Agree with this, another amazing shot Peter but this was the first thing I noticed also. I had a little trouble reading the text.

Here is the same shot, but without the blacks adjusted. I am definitely going to re-shoot this shot this week with her game jersey on and I will definitely add a hair and/or rim light to it, but is this second shot better than the first?

Thank you for your thoughts!

That is another awesome image! Kinda scary, though, because there isn't anything really keeping that python from just squeezing her neck, is there? But it sure makes for a sweet shot! My wife, who absolutely hates snakes of any kind, even thought the first one was sweet!

The only difference I can really see is that it lightens the background a tad. Try dodging some of her hair to lighten it up. It's not that big of a deal, but I what I think is causing the problem is she is a dark skinned lady with dark hair which makes her easier to disappear. If you look around her right side of her shoulders and body the light fall off on the background blends in with her, as well as her left arm (that shadow).

If there was a rim light behind her a flash shooting back at her on the ground. Or a hair light to lighten her hair up, or a some sid kickers it would help. I think if you just stick a speedlite on the ground and shoot it up at her back at like 1/8th or 1/32 power it would finish the photo. That's all I'm trying to say i suppose.
