Studio beauty shoot

Hey all, first time posting one of my portrait shots here and would love some feedback on this. Bold red makeup to match background. 'Phoenix feathers' made from layering numerous small paper triangles - cut out by hand! Lit with a single beauty dish for catchlights and background spill. Retouched in PS.

S T R I P E D - what do you use portraits for ?

The face is the part where emotions become visual. Faces are used to advertise or sell, to express ideas, to entertain, to detect lies or truth, to seduce, to capture an emotion or a character.

Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark III
Lens: Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L USM II
Light: Canon 430EX - Bounced
