About the Image(s)

I'm really excited to be part of this group.I like different types of photography, but my favorite is portraits. I've really been concentrating on posing during the last few months. The image I have submitted was taken at a recent meet up for models and photographers at a worn down abandoned site. Toward the end of the day, I came upon this young lady and it was the golden hour. I used a main light to give a pop of light to her face and used a separation light behind her.

Shot with Canon 5d mark IV, 1/80, f/4.0, ISO 100 with a canon 70-200 f/2.8 lens

Welcome to Group 61 Cheryl!

A nicely done portrait with the silky cloth adding some mystery to the image. The light drop-off works well in isolating your subject from the background.

I wonder if burning down the cloth just a touch might not give you a stronger image. The light reflecting off it brightens the whole area up and detracts from your model's face?
