Not as good as the masters from the other threads but felt like sharing anyway. Afterall, I've not posted/taken any portraits (fashion) for awhile. Weddings sure kept me busy for the past few months..

Right. Feel free to comment :D

nice pose! this is a hard shot because you have to choose between sacrificing shadow detail or highlight detail. the only way to get both would be to use flash/reflectors carefully.

so on to the technicalities...
in a perfect world i would use a large softbox or umbrella in front of her and a little to the left (looks like there is a light source but i think it's too left)

then i'd put a reflector on her right side slightly slanted up towards her to fill shadows.

lastly if i were to go for the sweaty look... spray some beads of water on her (i think MUAs use something else that works much better). if not, then i'd use matte powder on her face, looks a little shiney at the moment

well, those are my 2cents. thanks for sharing the pic! good work!
