Hi again guys.. I did my first photoshoot last Satuday and here are the results.. I used my Metz 48AF-1 wireless left of camera.. No backdrop and no other equipment used.. Pretty amateur equipment for this job but i d love to hear your opinion and suggestions..The model is my best friend Haris..

Great photos! I really like the b+w's. If you have another flash or light source to use, I'd say try placing it behind her, aimed at her head to give her a little halo and help her pop out from the black background. Very nice work for the minimal amount of equipment you used.

Yes indeed i 'll get a second flash soon,or depending my finance a set of studio flash.. I 'd love to have a light for halo effect but with one flash it's impossible..Thanks a lot also..

A simple reflector can often take the place of a second strobe. I often use one of those "windshield reflectors" that you can get at almost any auto parts store "2 for $10" (much cheaper than the same thing sold at a camera store). Tape it to a simple light stand (or even a tree branch) and boom... instant fill light.
