Portrait

by Jan Eljapa June. 06, 2008 3552 views

Making my first steps in the portrait world. Made this shot a few weeks ago but had some doubts posting it. Please if you have any tips on using light or other tips to improve please tell me.
This shot was taken with one backlight and a sb600 flash fill in.

The little gipsy girl... she`s got an irresistable smile! You are such a perfectionist! You still have doubts???? I find it perfect... the backlight gives a sunset feeling... Looks great!

I don't really have studio knowledge at all.
All I can say is that in this shot, I think that the backlight and the black background look really great, but I feel the flash is a little too «hard».

Nice composition and colors.
If you're into portraits, should consider getting lights other than flash!
Then, suddenly you are not photo amateur anymore ;)

I'm not qualified to give you any tips, but what I do know is that this is an excellent portrait. Everything about it is simply lovely. The dark background and the light in her hair is exquisite. The detail of her face, scarf is so great that I feel like she is right in front of me. Truly beautiful work. :)
