Very, very beautiful light.

I do see a bit to many squares here due to the hard crop of her hair. Hm, I've actually no idea what the different parts of hair is called, but the hair over her forehead is a small square and the outline of all of her hair is another... nope that makes sense...

OK, so her fringe is dead straight, tcdk, and the rest of her hair seems a little messy, but I'm more than impressed by your portrait Eric.

Your work is ALWAYS a pleasure to see.
Thanks for sharing it.

I used wind to get more movement in the hair, to me her hair was to perfect to begin with .

Gorgeous model, beatiful portrait, and lovely lighting. I like the new logo too...

Did you use a ringflash for this one or is that a BD?

I have tested the ABR800 for a few shoots now, and I really really don't like the effect :P, gives to flat images. BUT it is a wonderfull tool for location when you need something for fill light.

So my answer is BD side lights was all strip boxes.. And I really like strip boxes.. can't wait to do more stuff with them.

Thx and thank you for pointing me in the direction for logo.

It's a nice shot. Just wonder what it would look like if her head wasn't cropped.
I think the lighting is great.

I am really started to get pissed off at your work. It is making most of us here look like we have so much more work to do to get to your level. Thanks for making us look that way!
