    Fantastic shot! Well done, what type of lighting and focal length did you use?

    Nice shot, composition and lighting and the model is nice also. The only niggle I have is the right hand side timber panel. maybe just crop a little more so you don't see the Line disappearing out of frame

    Looks like a single strobe with a large modifier, up high and slightly to the photographers right (pretty obvious from the catch light). Still finding it hard to tell the difference between softboxes or beauty dishes. I'm going to flip a coin and go with an octobox, seeing as you use it quite a bit in your other shots. Light source is pretty far away as there's little fall off across the shot.

    I'd guess the focal length would be between 50 and 80mm, aperture is relatively high.

    That's an amazing portfolio BuD.

    Nicely executed shot. Great compo, lighting and pose.

    Looks a bit cool for but that is just my personal taste.

    thanks for all the comments :)


    cyrax83, Hamal was pretty much on the money
    my portrait lens is the 85mm zeiss and the light modifier was right where he likened it to be and i use my midi octa from elinchrom
    distance away from model would have been approx 1.5 to 2m

    very well lit but youve edited this so well, her skin looks clean without looking fake. its really awesome

    did you shoot this on location or is that a background which you use in a studio?

    I like the composition, but I feel like the colours are a little washed out, mostly through the face etc.

    Digging this! tones work for me and real nice use of lighting :thumbup:

    Would lose the ring for this kind of stuff though, and perhaps bring out the branding on the bottom piece if it were integral to the purpose of the shoot (difficult to make out on my screen at least) :)

    Great photo, mood, vibe, etc. I generally find model shots bit boring and generic, especially for swimwear, but yours seems to capture something, I think it's due to the pose, quite unique...

    Looks really good. For me the two bits of hair on her left cheek/eye is a distraction. Other than that i love it :thumbup:
