Nice work, Ed!
I like the lighting and pose in your image a lot. Good job.
I also agree that working with the same model over time is of great benefit to both parties. The model gets to learn and adjust to your particular style of shooting while you get to understand her positioning and can often anticipate an expression as time goes on. I usually liken that connection to a dance, but in truth maybe an orchestra tuning up is more in line with the experience. From what first sounds like random noise, you both fall into synch into a perfectly-timed symphony.
Looking forward to the next "song" all ready! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
