I ran into Mary at a shootout last August and it took until now to get a second shoot with her. I definitely think she was worth the long wait! All images shot in my home studio with three Alien Bee lights ... and a few miscellaneous light sources.

Very nice indeed Marty! I am particularly fond of the last shot, but I like them all. Question: You've stated you are using 3 AB strobes, but I am curious as to what
light modifiers you are using. Your light always seems so well controlled. C'mon
Marty... throw this dog a bone.

Marty: These are great. the Fourth one really rings the bell for me. I find the hair in her face on Two and Three to be a bit of a distraction but that is just me. Good job!

Ok, you caught me ... I only used all three Alien Bees on the first image ... for the rest, I used just two Alien Bees.

For image #4, I placed one AB-400 inside a 5' Octobox and located it camera left. I placed another AB-400 with a 30-degree grid in the doorway camera right. The difficulty was angling the mirror so I didn't see the cluttered background or my ugly face.

For shots #2 and #3, I used the 5' Octobox like a ringflash, placing it directly behind me. Behind her on the foyer below was an AB-400 pointing up at her backside. And, I had to work to get her to leave that piece of hair covering her face.

Thanks for the lighting description. It is one thing to control lighting in the studio and a whole other issue in a busy house. You made a complicated lighting setup look like a snapped mome in thee bedroom. Great job.
My softbox is too large and boxy to easily use. I have thought about an octobox and maybe I should go for it?
I understand about the hair comment, but it seems to be popular these days.
Thanks

Good shots. Kind of reminds me of Terry Hatcher a little.
