I had the chance to take some picture of the daughter of my cousin.



C&C welcome.

She is very pretty. I like this look of light. Do you have more or just this one?

What;s on the left side?? Also, it seems you chopped off at her joints, which from what I have heard (from pros) is a no-no.

Even though it seems bordering on blowing out on left side, I like the look. Hope you have more.

PRETTY lighting and colors!

I think playing with a crop to focus more on a headshot would be well worth it!

Yea she is.

From what I can see, it looks like a glass window on the left.

everytime I look at this image...it makes me go WOW!

You have not only captured great light, but you have, it seems to me, captured her innocent spirit.

Would you mind sharing your setup for this shot? Softboxes, umbrellas and so on
