Most recent session. I liked this shot. We're getting close to graduation and many of my classmates have been asking for pictures. Your thoughts and comments are of course welcome.

I think this is a good portrait of this Capt. I like the hair light (kicker) and I think the open lighting on her face works well for her.

I think you nailed this one and you get kudos for managing the light to avoid reflections in her glasses.

Thank you all.

She always wears glasses and would look different without them. The subject has a combination of an awkward prescription and lenses that aren't anti-reflective. I had noticed in the past that there was almost no angle at which light wouldn't reflect. I think her face shape strongly benefits from short light, which is harder to do with glasses. In addition, she favors a narrow frame style that tends to bisect her eyes if worn down the nose to prevent reflections. In all, a recipe for restrictions on my lighting I didn't want.

So I told her to find a set of inexpensive glasses with a frame shape she liked, and I took a hammer to them.

In Ranger training we called that "Improvise, adapt, overcome!"...You did that well!

Ok, seriously, now I feel called out as an idiot! I had to look back, I think the color of the inner arm tricked me into thinking there's a reflection. Excuses, excuses. Thanks for the explanation.

Along the technical side, a recommendation I've oft heard for dealing with reflective objects is to use polarized light sources.

That's correct, but getting the polarization material required to cover my 64" modifier would be expensive and difficult. Knocking the lenses out of a cheap pair of glasses was effective, inexpensive, and therapeutic.

I think your highlights on the face is a bit hot...normally with people with this type of skin tone. I can barely see skin texture. The kicker and fill is in the right amount.

Wow. This portrait is stunning. Very well done. I can not tell you enough how perfect this is to my eyes in almost every aspect.

Looks like a big time magazine cover. Grabs and entertains the eye. She should love it. And great use of your hammer.

I'm a rank amateur, but in my opinion, that's a damned fine portrait! I like everything, including her smile!
