\uap>Still trying my hand at studio. Much more difficult than it looks :-) Trying a bit of loop lighting with this. Not so prominent but it is there if you look closely. Don't know if my light on the left should still be a bit softer (darker)?

Hi Danie, Here is the second image I chose to ask for advice on.  I moved the lights to reduce shadow contrast, and focused on pose, impact and colour. I relied on the main soft box (key light) to lighten the background, and still think I should have deliberately put light on the white background to burn out all detail and reduce the grey tint... A portarait is safe, as there are less body parts to worry about, but here I went wide, and now have stepped into a complex world of composition and pose... could you offer advice with the pose or any othe rareas neding attention...

Danie, During a photo shoot session at your studio, I had a great time taking images of Minette all dressed up and with serious colours... I have looked at the images and duringthe shoot I wanted a clean crisp image sharp image with saturated colours. As Minette was continiously changing poses and positions I took a safe lighting set up, with one main softbox as the key light and filled in the shadows with a second light. The ratio was only 1 stop difference, and it is seems like I have left out something... should I have blown out the background with another light, or used a kicker light for her hairline? I have done no selective editing, and only global changes, as I wanted to print for Photo Club.
