Title Beyond Beautiful
Description The beautiful and lovely Mikaela Blazetic. Shot in studio with Pentax K-3 and the FA77 at f/5.0 and ISO100.

Strobist info (model): YN-560II @ 1/8 with beauty dish to camera right, YN-560II @ 1/8 with umbrella to camera left, YN-560II @ 1/32 behind model to camera right. Cactus V5 triggers.

Photographers reflection: I like the combination of a simple portrait, where her piercing eyes and casual look seduces you. You might even be pinching yourself after a while...

Hi shaynej ,

This is a master piece in it's kind. There are two things I'm going to suggest though. Please let me know your take:

- The fact that she is pinching her arm ..mmm..
- Don't you want to play a little bit with contrast. It might be my monitor but I feel like a slight shade of grey is covering the shot
