Very Advanced Lighting and a Beautiful Young Lady

Well, the beautiful young lady is right, but the lighting...


Well... a shower curtain to camera left - quite close to her, with a speedlight back about 6 feet from the shower curtain - on 1/2 power I believe (possibly 1/4 but doubtful) and slightly higher than her forehead. I put a speedlight at 1/16 behind her aimed at the brick but only about 18" from the back.


There is a fill reflector to camera right about 18" from her.


Photoshop: minimal skin retouch, and luminance masking to increase contrast within local areas.


Cheap Canon Camera with a good lens and some sort of wireless trigger.
