    I invite you to read my Blog and see other very different samples from the 2 hours studio session with the same subject. She is an art student at University. Not a pro model. A true beauty in all senses.

    What makes a portait a powerful one? What are the elements we have to search for to create the impact?

    Great portrait, and she's absolutely stunning! I do find the thin light halo around the hairline very distracting though.... maybe extend it out a bit more like the front of the face?
