Final shot of the day with Cynthia

It was blowing a gale and not exactly what you'd call 'warm'. But, with our model in the mood and Shinyong holding the softbox down we set about getting the finale shot on last week's shoot.

Wanted this shot for a while. Shinyong has a great rooftop to her flat. One shouldn't really be up there but as long as we're safe, the building management people don't seem to mind.

    Love the shot, love the attitude! Nothing is lost in the moment there is softness to it though, girlies we all need to be wearing these we will get what eva we want! When we want… and it makes u feel good this photograph is living proof it must be freezing .. does she look uncomfortable? Great shot

    I presume this is a proof, given the Lorem Ipsum in the face page…?
    The temperature was stripped from the EXIF data, so I'll have to guess that it wasn't more than 10°C out there.
    Why the softbox in addition to the included diffuser?

    +Drew Northup No diffuser. You can't have the umbrella attachment for the ringflash AND the diffuser; they don't fit together. Exif gets stripped due to Photoshop's 'save for web' feature. But, yes, cold….

    …and it is a proof, yes.
