The picture was made in a small room using a softbox that bounced on the white walls....the room was small so i was able to emulate a sort of lightbox. The flash was at maximum power (600 watt) with a diffuser to have light everywhere with small and diffused shadows. No Digital to increase the white effect but just darkroom.

I get the sense that Eolo is preparing for a career in glamour magazine advertising photography. If such is the case, then these are perfectly exposed. Even the poses fool the mind into seeing copy and product illustrations in the wide margins. This fellow has been doing his homework. Bravo! ---scott

Very nice. I can tell this must have been her first time. She will become more relaxed as you continue.
Also, I may be speaking out of term here. Or I may just sound stupid - which is more often than I'd like. But she has nothing to be ashamed of. Her pictures are awesome. But I believe they lack a relaxed feeling. Please don't take offense to that. I know you are open minded and can hear what I'm saying.. =)
Just giving you my perspective. I already know you are going to be a famous 'well known' fashion photographer.
Keep up the awesome work. I've bought my first roll of SuperXP2 and will be posting my results here later.
just to add my 2.5 cents worth... Sometimes that relaxed look doesn't help. I think in this case, both the shooter and the model being a little nervous works. The pictures have that "other something" that makes them work for me.
Eolo: For me they are No 1 and No 6, the very best. No 1 is a flirt, a promise. No 6 is a progression of 1, it tells me "I am uncertain but nevertheless yours" (or maybe shy ... but ...). Great poses. As Scott said: these will sell any (high end) product (in Europe); maybe a perfum. As we saw your advancement, through the great samples you have shown us, you have shared with us the Nikonians your venturing into what I can only envision as a great career. How to keep on improving will be getting tougher and tougher. Or maybe easier and easier ....... Congratulations and courage.
