Nice shot in general. Good sense of motion. The lighting is a little flat. Shadows are usually key to defining deminsions and you appear to have the light evenly balance on both sides of the model. The eyes could do with a little sparkle (catch lights).
Cheers,

A couple of things:
1. Please touch up the background where the small white areas appear to be dust spots.
2. Nice even skin tones until we reach her facial makeup which doesn't seem to match the rest of her body.

Hey, I know this one!
Nice image, okay pose, pretty model. Now, just move her away from the background, and add a hairlight!
I know this because I get fussed at for it regularly... Witness Tonia:

I'm not crazy about the background. If this was a senior portrait, maybe. But not for fashion/glamour - a bit cheesy.

Shadows add depth to a photo.

Try using only one head in an umbrella or softbox and put it at an angle to the model. Say 45 degrees. Or imagine she's at the center of a clock and you are at six o'clock. Put your light at 7 or 8 o'clock or at 4 or 5 o'clock.

Resist the temptation to use a fill light. Just because you have a second flash head, don't put it out front. Use it above and behind her and point it at her head for a light to separate her from the background.

Oftentimes, we are so anxious to shoot, we just turn on the lights and start blasting. Take the time to experiment, move the lights around. Find a model who is patient and eager to learn with you. Wives and girlfriends are good for this. Children can be good for this (it's the only reason I can think of to have any ... other than having them fetch Uncle Bruce a Diet Mt. Dew from the fridge.)

Can't find a model? Get one of those styrofoam wig heads. Watch the lights on it's face. Or even just use an egg or a piece of fruit.

Steal ideas from the people on this forum and others. That's what they're all doing.

Study Old Masters paintings and watch how they use light. Most of them used window light. With a flash system, you can move your "window" wherever you want.

I don't mind the background so much as the position of the legs- too extreme--too much tension in the right leg.

I like the model, pose and the lights...only I would crop it to the bottom of her dress. Her legs are not flattering but her face and hair are great. Try it and see what you think. I am not a fan of a lot of background when I am trying to (feature) her best features.

Her legs aren't flattering becuase she's SHORT. One thing you have to learn NOT to do is shoot short girls from a height that is taller than thay are WITH a wide angle lens...it distorts them and makes them look like a troll!

I see this constantly with newer shooters and new models...

Don;t be lazy...get on your knees or squat down and HELP those models that are challenged for height!
