Just a "getting to know each other" session. Really looking forward to working with her some more on something more creative, we just need to decide what !

Comments / critique welcome.

Perhaps bring your lights a bit closer together in the middle. Eyes seem really dark on my uncalibrated montior. FWIW

Nice pose and good expression. I agree with Bryan about the lighting. The two lights are too far to the side and both seem about the same intensity.. Bring one around more to the front and reduce the intensity of the other.

The shadows under her eyes are distracting, but she's a very attractive woman. I look forward to seeing more with her.

Gorgeous model, great pose, but I too find the lighting a little on the dark side for the eyes. Otherwise fine job.

She's a beautiful model. Did you intentionally have her face/eyes OOF? If so or not, its distracting to me.

Thanks for the comments everyone. She's a busy girl but up for more shoots, we just have to come up with a "concept" (don't you hate it when they say that ? )

Here is another from the session. I really do struggle with the lighting side of things

Eyes/face out of focus ? Really ?

I don't think they are. Would you like a 100% crop of the eyes from the original image ?

My lighting may not be right but the eyes / face ARE in focus at least !

On the second shot looks as if camera rights light is too low casting a shadow on her left top of head.

Andy, she's lovely but her eyebrow style needs help imho. Not to be cruel, and it's no reflection on your photo skills, but she's a bridge-of-the-nose away from a monobrow. Maybe if her eyebrows were arched a bit, it wouldn't look like that to me. I'd also like to see more detail and/or highlights in her hair. A bit blocky.

Thanks for commenting. I should point out that she owns/manages a health food store and personal trainer not an actual model. She has a great err "lower half" but had skin tight neon blue stretch pants on for this as I had specified headshots.

She is actually the gf of someone I used to work with. Her passion was / is acting more than modelling which is why she is up for some creative shoots. I'll tell her next time I see her though

Fair point on the hair, I'm looking to add a hair light but need another flash for that and haven't the funds although I may be able to use my 2nd flash for that in future and a reflector for fill.

She is beautiful. As others have commented on light and so forth, I will only add that it does appear that her skin is over-smoothed. That may be why some think it's out of focus. I would love to see photos of her with less skin smoothing. It borders on plastic looking, and I'm sure that is not your intent.
