[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was playing with lighting this time and made used of my dad's 50w halogen lamp combined with my 8w study lamp. I positioned the halogen on top to create a bright that bright highlight and to compensate for the shadow, positioned the study lamp in from of her.

Unfortunately the halogen lamp fell after a couple of shots so I guess i'll have to get a new one before my dad finds out.

Very minimal photoshop was done except for USM and cropping of course.

Let me know whatcha think.

Cool portrait !

Glamour shot in a way with this cool cap. May be a bit too cold light and mood with tese bright lights. Nevertheless I like the pose of yourmodel, and sharpeness.

very nice portrait, the kid looks fantastic nice pose.


It's a memorable photo and above all it reflects happiness, sweetness and innocence - good lighting and love when it's natural!
Keep it up.

Hey mate
Good work with the halogens, positioning is good. Sharpness here is excellent. A small spot of OE on her wrist nearest the light. Keep shooting - you're producing some excellent work!
