    Hi Samantha, to answer your question I think this is a great opportunity for a reflection, although I’m not sure who the subject is or what the context of the moment is, but visually it’s a gorgeous shot. I would say that two things stand out to me, though: the brightness could be a bit brighter overall, and the subject’s face doesn’t match the light angle. They’re looking up and out of the light, so that there’s no catchlight in their eyes. The position of the lighting right now could be good for a smiling at the camera shot, but when turning the head up and to the side, the light should also change to illuminate them so that they appear to be looking towards the light. (Of course never have your subject look directly at a flash!)

    Thanks Matthew!!! There was a black glossy table reflecting light…and I just don’t use reflections often, so thought it’d be a good time to start HA
