59/365 - Retro Stockings

This started out being all about the stocking seam and morphed into this photo --- which doesn't really show you the stocking seam very much. Oh well, here you go anyway. The goal was a "Retro" style shot with "hard" light.


We were originally working into the light on the right hand side but switched to the left when my model pulled in the seat. The hair light then became a key light with the SB-80DX filling in. The former key like then acted as a separation light. Sometimes you just roll with it -- Internet High Five!!


Setup shot here. Check it out -- it's a link fest.



Style 600S - bare studio light right

SB-80DX left

Style 600S through a 20 degree grid on studio light rear left (hair light)


Post Processing: Not much really. Boosted the exposure and blacks then dropped the Saturation. All in Lightroom (I did drop it onto PS to modify some of the desaturation).


Confession 2: I have a flickr addiction.


Confession 3: I'm a "leg man".
