Phoebe - Portrait

Trying out my new shoot thru umbrella with a Nikon SB600 flash inside.


  1. What a beauty, both the woman and the photograph. I especially like the fact that you made no skin treatment (as I often do, much to my despair...) It gives a more natural picture, no doubt about it.


  2. Thanks for the kind comments Roger! And yes, I prefer the "natural" look. I think that sometimes the skin smoothing can look a little plasticy and even cartoonish, but I have seen it done properly before and then it can look fairly good. I suppose it comes down to the old adage of "moderation in all things".

  3. I like this too! And of the boy..very good.
