Very different from your usual. Your portrait gallery has some great images. Tell me, is the woman lit entirely by bounced flash lighting, or is there another artificial or natural source added from below front that contributes to the even exposure? Are you using an on flash reflector to create the catch lights? The tonality is perfect! I think the tight crop works well given your model is crouched into a knot. Yet, she looks comfortable and has a curious, relaxed expression. Very pretty model
Hy Stephen, well that's the curtains drawn behind her, so no daylight other than that filtering through. It's just a flash off camera with no reflector ..
It is a beautiful image with a wonderful, interesting pose. Nicely done. Dan
7/7 great composition and pose, love it, cheers LV
I love it. That pose is great. And you know how I feel about your photography. :) Hugs
Beautiful shot and contrast, congrats //Salvador
John. WOW! I love this shot, so lovely look and excellent skin tones, 10/10, original pose. Alberto
Cool shot,John. Very good composition and tone.
John, The eyes make this image. It has a somewhat distorted look that I also find appealing. Was this taken with a shorter focal length than you normally use? Jim Phelps
7-7 very original point of view ...
Jim, it's the same zoom lens, I just move back and forth .. but I don't have anything like the wide angle that you sometimes use ...
great composition and pose!!!
Great shot. Nice crop too.

Great image, John. Has a very subtle retro feel to it. And the model is gorgeous. Nice work.
Beauitful expression and angles. I love her body language. Very unique image. Love the close crop. Well done John!
JOHN you DID IT!!! GORGEOUS BEYOND BELIEVE!!! All is well in your world!! Warm regards.
I like this one a lot. Hate a chair though..Cong.
Haha, that is a compliment, thank you. Clermson Guy is using the same technique, look at some of his work too. It's a kamikaze way of doing things, but when it works, the result is quite suitable in my view. It has the adavantage of increasing ambiant light and often leaving natural shadows where they are, which strobes and other complcated methods will not do.
bounced flash magic
It's just a flash off camera with no reflector
Your command of this technique is amazing
(half of the time I'm thinking you're pulling our legs ;)
