    First real 'studio' type shoot I've done with micro 4/3. I think it did admirably! These are candidates for the annual Christmas card. All with GH2 and PanaLeica 45/2.8, with two off camera speedlights (one shoot through white umbrella, the fill was a reflected silver umbrella)

    Truly a professional job! While all of the shots are wonderful... I would go with the first one for the purposes of a greeting card. A beautiful girl. Congratulations on the great work.

    Well done!

    What were your camera settings?

    Also, was the shoot-through umbie on her right (your left) or vice versa? I can usually tell by the intensity of the catchlight in the eyes; however, I can't determine.

    You did a good job will the velvetine. It is usually difficult to showcase such a highly light-absorbtive fabric.

    Was the backdrop paper? What color?
