thanks for sharing! well done, great job.

Your exposure is right on, and a white jacket is a challenge.

Lots of good points in this shot,
exposure is right on. nice catchlights in her eyes. the shadows across her face are softish. I like your light placement, looks about 45 degrees to left, here, I would have added somehting to bounce the light on camera right side. it would fill the shadows nicely. a piece of white paper works well, cardboard, a white wall (hard to move walls, but easy to ask subject to stand closer to wall). I think a bounce card for fill would lighten her chest area, and bring out some detail in the necklace too.

sometimes I mount lights higher, just over head, provides closer to natural light, as we are used to seeing the sun overhead.

something I check before I click, is what is around the subjects head. sometimes I can move easily, to move the background, in this case, the pipes, or corner, what ever those dark edges are, distract the eye a little, but still well taken none the less.

love to see you at the january workshop again! (check the calendar).
