Had a nice Shoot with a local girl, again this was her first Shoot.
I would welcome critiques as I tried some very different things. thanks
The First photo was shot with a black background and a shear black fabric hanging a few feet in front of it. Two lights behind (both at lowest power), the left-hand light had barn doors and a pink gel, the right-hand light had a 10 degree Grid with a purple Gel. From the front was a Beauty Dish (centered), and to the right, a large zig-zag gold (Red Wing) reflector with a bastard amber gel fired into it.
This next Photo had the Beauty Dish powered very Low (yet still centered) and on the rightwas the Large zig-zag gold (Red Wing) reflector with a bastard amber gel fired into it, was now the main light (as it was now on high power). This set-up provides incredilble warmth, so I played with Saturation (in Photoshop) reducing the yellow and green tones, until I achieved something I liked.
The last Photo was made with a Bamboo Screen, a Hair Light (with a small Photoflex Soft Box and Grid) was all that was on behind the screen. in front of the screen was a Beauty Dish. I could not see the Model at all before the Shot and had to reveiw each photo on my camera after the shot, so she was on her own posing. Still, I thought it made for some sexy and mysterious looks.
