Summer Portraits #4

Here's another photo from our shoot with Nina earlier in August. I've been experimenting lately with some new software and techniques for retouching, so thought I'd try them out on this image. It doesn't look much like summer, but this was taken late afternoon, and I purposely was trying to darken the background to bring her face forward. Probably could have used some lights for the hair to separate her from the background, but the whole purpose of our summer shoots has been to work with one light. For this image we used an SB900 in a Lastolite EZYbox above left, and I had Nina hold a gold tri-grip to bounce a little warm light back in her face. 1/250 sec at f/4.5.
