Very pretty photo! The model is gorgeous, great expression, makeup, color, exposure...

The small light source just wasn't up to the task. Given that was what you had to work with, I think I would have adjusted the lighting to the right and up a bit, or if that didn't work maybe back up/adjust/crop to get the light on the far side of her face and the top of her head. I think a diffuser (like a Gary Fong) would have helped. Regardless, I think the image really pops. I think if I were you I'd have a run at it in PS and see if I could bring up the light on the top of her head (and take care of the stray hair on her cheek while you have the hood up).

Despite the small light source, this is one of the prettiest shots I have seen in a while.

(Sorry, I don't have anything even close for the rule)

she's a beautiful model but i don't think you've done her justice. i think if you compensated to let more ambient light in it would of come out a bit more pleasing than using a speedlight as the main source of lighting.

Your EXIF:
Exposure Time = 1/125"
F Number = F5.6
Exposure Program = Aperture priority
ISO Speed Ratings = 400

your skin softening technique looks like it carried over to her hair also.

Thank you for your comment.
I was in a show (Athens Erotica) and the model is a stripper.I didn't have choices about lightning...In additional the model was in move!!!

My tecnique in P.S is simple.Duplicate backgound,use gausian blur and opacity about 50%,and with "layer mask reveal all" i "clean" the eyes,mouth,lips,hair,clothes.I use a brush with hardness 0 (for the face) and opacity 60%.

If you know a better method about photoshop,please let me know!

Stathis!

I could imagine the challenge with various lighting conditions but you do have choices on setting your ISO, aperture, and shutter. The camera settings you used to shoot the image I have listed on my previous reply. Bumping up the ISO and lowering aperture would have helped bring in ambient light. Bouncing light helps as well.

Sorry, I don't really have a special technique with skin softening. I like to maintain detail in the face so I start off with models with good to great skin. Then I retouch with a combination of healing brush and clone stamp. If I feel I need skin softening, which is rare for me now, I use a very subtle or low opacity of gaussian blur.
