Stunning portrait work

I love the background, use of color, and the mood. The only thing that detracts a little from the composition is the clutter in the reflection from the guitar. Only because it is a posed piece.

you're right! One day I'll get a proper studio space. One day...

Really all you needed was something to reflect light back into the guitar, beautiful work otherwise! keep doing what you do

I'm going to sound odd, but, I am drawn to the guitar it's stunning, and the oh a model she's nice. Ooh look at that guitar.

I think it's normal: Shirley is as drawn to her guitar as you are.

You do such amazing work. Your details are always so sharp. Your poses are so reflective; you always create a mood in a single moment. You combine so much beauty in this shot, however tempered with just a trace of sadness. It makes me miss George Harrison. My age showing.

hehe thanks Tim. I'll share a bit of a backstory: the wall was white, the scene is lit with a single speedlight put on top of a chair on top of a stool, hidden behind white bed sheets, and the reflection on the guitar is my kitchen.

The only improvement I would even attempt to make is substitute the Ibanez with a Gibson sixties cherry ES335 with Bigsby tremolo, but then that's just my opinion. Great pose.

Forwarding the comment to Shirley, just to see what she thinks about your suggestion :=)

Shirley's a musician, and the greatest love she has in her life is her guitar.
