Are you taking a class?

This posing is very professional, it's that magical 45 degree angle, which is so flattering for women. Plus, the skin tone is very good.

My only suggestion is that the triangle of light is too high --it should be on her cheek, and the shadow is rather dark, based on what I've been taught. It should be a 1:2 ratio rather than 1:4 light to shadow. But, other than that, this portrait is really nice!!!

Sherry, this is a beautiful portrait. The dress color, her hair, the lighting all work together to make it wonderful. What kind of lighting do you use?

Your gallery is great, too. Really nice work. #8478497
