Here's a shot that we did last Friday with a local San Diego model, Bianca Malise.

This image was recreated from one of the Alberto Vargas drawings done for Playboy Magazine. (I'll post a different image from the same shoot in the nude section in a bit.)

I had some fun building the fence. Everything else was fairly easy. Not much work done in PS either (I'm thankful for that.)

Shot with the Canon 1Dsmk2, ISO100, f11@1/200 with a 24-70 f2.8/L. The main light was a 5' Octodome (straight on, behind me), fired by an Alien Bee 1600. Two AB800's with white umbrellas were used to flood the background. We used an 8"x20" PhotoFlex halfdome for the hairlight w/AB400 and I added an 18"x36" halfdome with an AB1600 to add some white fill to the floor in front of the model.

Best regards,
John

as always I love your posts, very informative with setup and great images. This one is nice, but her mid section looks a little odd, like her stomach was cloned out or something.
Technically wise though I am loving it.

Thanks Jackieraye. Bianca was very enjoyable to work with. Trying to re-create the Vargas images in every detail is very trying for the models and required much patience as the poses are adjusted to mimick the original. Bianca was a realy trooper about this... very patient.

Thanks for commenting. Bianca has an extremly trim and slim figure. No cloning in her stomach area at all. As a matter of fact, most all of the PS work was done on the floor, cloning out the screw heads from all the screws that held the fence together and cloning out a rear brace on the fence to give it more stability while she sat on it. Of course I increased the saturation and contrast a bit as well.

Kind regards,
John
