The first shot is D7000, Nikon 17-55mm @ 34mm, ISO 100, Manual exposure for Ambient light at about -1.3 EV, 1/500s, F/3.5, (Wanted to keep shallow DOF, so at F/3.5 shutter had to be higher than 1/320, but it was plenty of light from three Speedlight). Two Speedlights off camera as a main light (slaves), one more above the camera (high on a bracket) as fill flash -1EV , in Master/Commander mode.

Second shot is somewhat similar settings, but taken 20 minutes later, so shutter speed went down.

Thank you for looking.

Great job with them! All too often I see photos where the subject is overexposed due to ineffective use of flash. In your images, you did a great job balancing flash with the ambient lighting (especially on the second image) as there appears to be a very similar exposure on both!
Also, women with freckles are gorgeous and your models exemplify that!

Thank you so much for such warm feedback! Based on your response, I tweaked a bit cropping on the first one, to remove some of the dark clouds from background and uploaded it again.

and BTW, the second image is a crop from a full size portrait, like the first one. I'm impressed with 17-55 capability, don't use my 50mm AF-S f/1.8 at all anymore.

I like them both but the 2nd is particularly well done. I have to admit though I am partial to head and shoulder shots.
