How well does this work?

This portrait is a change in lighting setup for me. Rather than my usual arrangement, I positioned the main strobes slightly below Mia's eye level, with a smaller speedlight above eye level to balance out shadows. Another speedlite is positioned slightly to the left for the same purpose.

The idea of this kind of lighting is to eliminate the tiny shadows caused by wrinkles and skin texture, and create a glamorous-looking complexion.

You can see the lighting setup reflected in her eyes in the workshop.


Mia is a very accommodating friend who will patiently pose while I conduct trial-and-error experiments like this. :)

Unfortunately, with a baby and a cafe and a full time job, I don't have a lot of time to do photography any more!!

Hi Rew,
A great portrait of this attractive lady - I think the change in lighting set-up has worked vary well, there is just enough light in her hair to separate it from the BG. The shin tones are excellent but the tiny glimpse of Mia's left earring does catch my eye.

Hi Rew,
I like the result of your lighting technique, your model's skin tones look so natural & no signs of OE. I was not sure about your inclusion of the earings,there's just a hint of the second one on her left ear,nor of her hair coloring being in the shade & also wondered if the cleavage was nescessary,as I thought her beautiful facial features were the main subject so I did a WS & found the earings gave the glamorous look to the image,still not sure about the shadowed hair & the cleavage,hope you don't mind the WS.

HI Rew...beautiful shot of a beautiful woman...excellent light and tones. Perfect focus.


Bom dia REw
Your models are very beautiful woman. Good portrait you managed perfectly well the light.I like the skin texture and color and specialy how hair and bg can be visible, very good.
Um abraço

Dear Rew,

A marvelous portrait work with such amazing control of exposure on the eyes of your model!
I like her pose and the way the pendant is glowing against her nice skin tone.
She has an attractive face and the way she is facing the camera gives this work a strong appeal indeed.
The portrait is razor-sharp and light is well managed here.

Thanks for sharing.

Kind regards,

Fill the frame -
Hi Rew - thats exactly what you did!
Nice illumination of a beautiful lady with perfect skin tones. Much better than the last couple of your posts here which I would have rated - not enough Rew Shearer Style - thing there were enough others who told you that already.
Good to see you are back with what made your photographs unique. Keep on.
Kind regards,

Well Rew, this works for me..))
I like the special attention to the hair light, which is just "right", not too dim, nore too bright, revealing just enough fine highlight, give the hair shape and separation.

You might want tho to pay a little more attention to small details, such as the twisted strap, and the small string of messy hair on the top of it on her right shoulder. But aside from this, I do like this shot very much. "Convincing and sincere expression on the part of the model. We might never know exactly how a person trully feel when posing for a shot, but surelly, many of us, can't detect a certain amount of "sincerity" and "conviction" in an expression; humans are kind of expert reading face expression..))


Good night Rew.
Lovely portrait, with a large and competent use of light that will reveal the textures of the wonderful skin, beautiful eyes, and especially the hair.
Nice work.
