Beautiful Ashma
Mar 28, 2012

Here are a few pictures from my first shooting with Ashma. She preferred keeping her expressions pretty serious or cool.

I know that the shooting angle is the best in the first picture, considering her facial structure, but I love the expressions and contact with me in the last two also.

Comments are welcome, as always. Cheers,

Teemu Salminen

Very nice work on your part! The girl is beautiful as well. I am not fond of the experssion on her face, but that is a personal preference.

Lovely shots of a lovely girl.

But #2 looks odd to me - due to the angle of her head and drop of her hair and also her arms, her head looks as though it has been displaced, almost as though her haid is on back-to-front on her body! A bit like a v bad photoshop (which I know it's not) she's a strangely flexible girl!

Great work, l particularly like the second shot. By the way, what kind of surface is she on making that reflection? I think the image quality is excellent too. What kind of camera and lens did you use?

She is alluring. I really like the first one. The hair/rim lighting strikes the ideal balance between bringing out the character of all that black hair, while not taking attention from her face.

Am I the only one who will mention the clothing? You might not like the first pic so much, but I love the blue dress. The color and detail is so great especially combined with her deep, dark hair. The gold top in the last shot is also wonderful and gives a quieter, more subdued feel to the shot. The clothing is obviously intrinsically related to the model and helps make this set quite special.

Thank you for your comment.
The camera was Canon 5D Mark II and in the second
picture I used the 70-200mm f/2.8 IS II.

To get the reflections I used some very thin PC-sheets (polycarbonate) on the white floor.

Thank you for your comment Brev00.

The blue dress was really beautiful and I was first a bit worried that how could I also get the beauty of it into the picture, but finally I found a proper way of lighting her and her costume.

Ashma was born in Finland and has been living here all her life, but her family comes originally from Iran. If I understood right, this is a national costume of the Kurdish people (please correct me if I´m wrong).

Thank you all for the comments, QVee, 69chevy, AC1 and Suntan! I already answered to the others earlier this morning (in my country, that is).

For AC1: Ashma dances and she really is "flexible" and could follow my guidance well.
She also used a strong hairspray to keep her hair "in order". Thanks,

Funny. I thought the same about no 2. Looks as if the head was inserted from another photo - quick / rough PS work

Thank you for the comment.

I haven´t inserted anything in this picture, why would I have done so? She is turning her head quite strongly to the camera and she has a long thick hair. Maybe these things somehow made you think like that.

"Quick/rough PS work"- and that´s the only thing you wanted to say about these pictures
