Not a boxer so forgive her technique, But I like the anger and expression on this one.
Gel work needs some improvement too.

never minding the technique, the model still looks too stiff for her expression

There is a disconnect between the model's expression and her movement, and it isn't believable... look at the bag, it is angled towards her, when she is making contact with it –– it should be moving, but it is stationary and angled towards her. Find a real Athlete to make this shot, and I bet it comes out 100% different. True Athletes can do things others can't, and finding a model that can do both is tuff... I have dealt with this very thing while shooting athletic apparel for a commercial client –– always picked a model vs a model that would able to perform the skills needed to create a believable image. the space to the left of the back, I would remove...

Thanks mate, appreciate the feedback.

Definitely would have a better outcome with a trained boxer, no doubt about it. However this was just a private commission and she wanted to wrap the shoot up with something different to her other looks.

While she is set up and posed for the shot, she is 100% punching that bag as hard as she can, it’s just coming back on the swing. I could have stopped and reset the bag for the shot though, I’ll keep that in mind for next time.

Thanks again
