A portrait of my friend Hannah, the goal was to just use one light and see how far I can make it work for both the subject and the background.

Absolutely stunning. I love the tilt of the head, skin texture, lighting and the beauty of the model.

Lighting for model plus background (your goal with one light) worked really well. You even got a hair light.

Well done.

Thanks a lot! I always try and maintain skin texture as much as possible, glad to see that you noticed it.

Thanks Jim. I used a couple of white cards to bounce the light around as needed to achieve some fill and increase the light bouncing back on the hair. And for the one where it bounced on to the hair, I used a black card to block it from spilling too much onto the face as well.

Processed one more image from the same shoot, that I thought was a good fit for a black n white.

Lovely!

I'm a big fan of simple lighting schemes.

Both images are very nice, but I feel that the second image is stunningly beautiful!

The black and white is absolutely stunning. I like the way the light and the f 2.8 soften her face and give her a glow. #1 is just a bit too sharp for my taste and her eyes seem too clear. I would like to see the first at f 2.8.

I prefer the first one to the second one. Slightly turned head position is nice. In the second one the model's neck is extended a tad too much forward, IMO.

Thanks for your feedback! I had not shot the first one at f 2.8. I totally understand what you are saying but as you had mentioned, it is a matter of taste. I use shallow depth of field very sparingly. I like to use lighting to sell the depth by sculpting out the shapes on a face and I really enjoy seeing some skin texture.It makes the image feel tangible, almost like the person is there right in front of you.

I completely agree. Something about that second shot was making me feel uneasy about it. Thanks for helping out and pointing that issue about the neck being extended a tad too much. Plus I also feel that the eye on camera-left has the pupil almost touching the bridge of the nose, makes her look a bit squinty! I definitely feel the first one is the keeper here.

Thank you so much.

Agree - and it fits the caption "simple beauty" much better too, as you cannot see the heavy makeup and lipstick in B&W

Interesting perspective. There was some make up done on the eyes and a bit on the lips but Hannah has such beautiful skin too. Thanks for the feedback!
