photoblog image first muse revisited

first muse revisited

hey folks
hope you remember my doctor friend bunmi
this is a more recent picture of her
this time, i wasn't as overzealous with the skin and i now know a little bit more about lighting

it's been almost 5 years between both pix but she hasn't aged one bit
she's a welcome muse anytime

To be honest, DrAW, I can't believe it's the same person! Her smile is gorgeous but that earlier photo makes her msyterious in a glamorous way!

This is a very pleasing portrait. Her personality seems to come through.

Now lets talk about the hot spot on her forehead (looks like direct flash to me)

Okay sing with me: Bounce, bounce, bounce to my new fuji cabbage..... grin
DrAW!: (alan shore voice)...you cannot exclude use of bounce to a medical certainty can you grin

lmaoed at fuji cabbage
Wonderful portrait. I love her smile!
DrAW!: thanks richard

DrAW!: yeah one would think she went to smiling school or something
Something very graceful about Bunmi. Lovely capture here, Doc.

She looks a fun person to be with, doc. I like your choices of colours for the setting. They harmonise so well with the subject. I really like her dress too.
DrAW!: thanks chad
though most of the credit goes to her grin

A lovely shot. I love her hair smile
DrAW!: thanks tia grin
You've certainly got better control of lighting in this image. In the other one you nuked her head...and the skin smoothing didnt help hide it. Same happened to me a few weeks back. What lighting setup do you use?
DrAW!: thanks tony

for this shot, a single on-flash speedlite, angled so it can bounce of the wall and ceiling
