That is a really nice shot - I presume it was with your 24-105mm?

So your flash was off camera? Did you use a cord and was it handeld or mounted somewhere?

Thanks Markh!!

Gordon, it was on my 17-40mm and flash was mounted on camera but I tilted the head toward above of my right shoulder bounced to the wall. BTW, it's nice to received a good comment from you, I guess everybody in this forum feels the same...Thanks again

That's a very vibrant portrait with lot's of "impact"

Her natural beauty and a slightly enigmatic expression - perhaps on the verge of a smile - combined with good lighting and a little catch-light, makes this portrait really good.

The background depends on the purpose or the mood you wish to portray. It looks like a home so that's where you think she is, when seeing it.

With a face like that - expressive and large brown eyes and a perfectly defined cupid's curve to her lips - you could drape her in the Crown Jewels of England and she'd grab all the attention.

Cheers :-)

I like it. :-)

Maybe try with a plain background and see if it turns out even better?

G,

I'm using auto white balance shooting in Raw and I think I have changed to cloudy setting...forgetful :D

LahLahSr,

Thanks for your comment and yes, it was in her bedroom. It was a casual shot as to try out my new flash.

artofnora & luis,

Thanks a lot...
