Here's the 2nd of the Vargas Studio setup, B4 and after & post production notes.

I'll do my best to answer any questions.

Model: Bianca Malise (San Diego)
Producer, Makeup & Hair: Kortney (my daughter & partner)
Camera: Canon EOS 1Dsmk2, EF70-200f.28/L/IS, ISO100, f11, 1/200
Shooting RAW, tethered to an iMac G5 running Capture1 Pro.
Main: Alien Bee(AB) 1600 w/5' PhotoFlex Octodome
Hair: AB400 w/8"x20" PhotoFelx half-dome
Back: 2 AB800's with white umbrellas
Extra: 1 AB1600 w/18"x36" PhotoFlex Halfdome to help lighten the Plexiglas in front of model.
Black curtains to help control scatter.
White Savage 9' seamless backdrop and floor covering with a 6' x 8' x 1/4" white plexiglas.

The fence we built by hand with pre-cut materials from Home Depot, screws and a quart of white paint.

The pumkin (have you ever tried to find a real pumpkin out of season? Impossible!), is from Ebay. Its actually pretty cool. The material is an incredibly durable foamy-plastic that is about 1/4" thick and is carveable. It took about 10 minutes, while the model was changing, to cut out the face with a utility knife.

Here is the studio setup shot with tags...


Here's the B4 Photoshop/post-production image...
Most of the post-production work was to lighten the background... do a little work on Bianca's skin (not too much)... clone out the nipple area (so I could use the shot in more places)... little bit of eye and teeth whitening and a lot of work to clone out the rear fence support brace.


Here's the final image...
