That's right Denzil. That's the only lighting I use, other than natural light.
very nice shot, has a fresh natural look and feeling.
Subject is Beautiful....Not sure what the reflection in her Glasses is?
Count me among the strange, but I've always preferred to see just a little reflection of something in glasses, rather than an empty frame look. So long as the reflection doesn't obscure the eyes it's fine. That aside, I like the shot. It has a candid feeling to it like it was caught on the fly.
Joe, that's right. She was reading and she looked up.
I adore this portrait, John. No need for further analysis...
Well Peter, I'm going to have to stop posting nudes then !
wonderful well done John...you have captured here as good an image as any of your others...she is at ease and you were able to capture a pure, natural expression
John, you're a natural. I love the lighting on this shot and the way you have captured her personality. The reflection in the glasses I think has helped to draw my attention to her eyes. Did you mention once that your lightening setup is usually an on camera flash bounced off a wall or was that just for one particular photo? I don't have studio equipments and your answer might just excite my creative juices.
Great... If this was candid, its portrait quality. Great skin tones and color, model position. Beautiful model also. Great photo.
Thanks Jim, but I have a little feeling that the model deserves more of the praise than me!
You captured a wonderful expression. Perhaps it's my color settings or the scan, but the lighting along the near jaw line and in the reflection is a bit on the harsh side. Still a nice moment.
A perfectly lit candid that evokes an entire visual symphony of complements and contrasts -- dark blue sweater, pale blue eyes; unblemishd skin, deeply textured fabric; youthful sensuality, librarian glasses. Wonderful. Just wonderful.

great john, you have an unbelivable sense for womens bobys and souls
Thank you Rosa. I worship them from all aspects.
I love how this photo gives you a sense of her personality. Lovely skin tones and nice bounce on the flash. I enjoyed all your folders, thanks for sharing.
Very Nice Very Nice photo. it has a nice sense of spontinaity, and is just as beautiful as your other photos
sw another stunning photo @!$#@#*&^&*
Ok Dow, thank you, just posted another one then taken in the library ...
This is the most wholesome photo I've seen of her, maybe the most wholesome one you've ever done! Lovely skin tones and shadow. I love the glasses. She seems very sweet. Glad that you are so well rounded.
John, every time I browse through your portfolio, I always stop on this one. One of my favorites. Just thought I would comment this time. Charles
A very close crop of her face, perfectly cut up and down, only showing part of her informal free hair and her high collar blue jersey doubling her eyes background. The spontaneity of the image gives 90% of success with masters like you. It´s one of the finest portraits of someone with glasses I saw in PN and one of your finest images in terms of composition and lighting. I love to learn so much with your work. Tks for shrg.
