Im trying to do shot where my model is shot in low light. I wish i could give you a pic example but I dont have one. The look im looking for is alot of dark, and the profile of my model is only lit, defining the curves and implying what is hidden by the darkness. If anyone knows what im babbling about could you lend some advice? I cant get this shot out of my head!

Nice shot, RFS ... and a great example of side lighting for the OP.

I recently made a posting under the title "First Post" that may be the style you're looking for. Here's the link:

If this is what you're looking for, let me know and I can tell you how I set it up.

I am also very interested in the set-up on these types of photo's.

RFS and Bodyscapes, if you or anyone else can give some quick tips on how to achive this, I would very much appreciate it.

I also enjoy the shots where they are much closer to the body... You know, where you have to take a second to realize what you are looking at.

Thanks in advance, and sorry if this does not make sense.

Eric

The light on this was a 600 watt monolight dialed down as low as it would go. Probably less then 100 watts. Modifier was a standard 6" reflector with a 10 degree grid.

Thanks Mark. But what if I dont have lighting that I can dial down, like... lets say "Home Depot" lighting. I have a homemade "softbox" around it should I just add more fabric to the front, until I get the desired effect?

Thanks again

Eric
