lovely shot Luhut, good exposure possibly a turned umbrella have better effect? #226024

Hi Roger,

Thanks for your comments. Perhaps it would have a better effect, but unfortunately we did not try it. It did not come to our mind..:-)..
Thanks anyway. #1184840

I really like how the umbrella and the black dress somehow makes the bright light work for this shot. #1185988

Chris, the umbrella is a reflector which we normally use indoor (in studio). We purposely brought to use it outdoor. Unfortunately it is not adjustable, i.e. cannot turn it.

Thank you all for your comments.. #1192222

Great shot and lovely model. But We don't use that umbrella on the beach. #1224078

Ditto to all the other comments. First thing that hit me with this photo was the great exposure. Exposure in this situation is not an easy thing. Great job. - Alan #1274516
