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.

Thanks, I got it. I was just wondering if the blacks adjustment made any difference. Apparently not too much. :D

Thanks for your input; I will put in a hair light when I reshoot later this week!

It just depends on your lighting situation (inside/outside) and how much depth of field you want. Aperture will affect the flash's light as well.

hummm

i got to this by way of knowing @ 1/2 power on my AB1600 and with a modifer 60 inch Softlighter, with ISO 100, @ F8 works out to being a good exposure

also i choose F8 because my lens is in its sweet spot around 5.6 to 9.. so anything in that range my 85 does a good job.

as for the question about the beauty dish, it puts off a nice contrasty specular light, much different than a soft box.. and a umbrella is very close to the softbox but no spill control.

the gridded beauty dish is a great modifier, but you have to have young skin for the beauty dish, being it is a tad more harsh of light..

hopefully others can chime in about the beauty dish light vs umbrella..

Well done. The model did a awesome job at not looking cold as well.

my favorites from you have been this white studio series Luke, this one has a great magazine look with the flowing hair. Great lighting using just a Qbox and reflector!
