    First time taking any shots like this.......I was wondering if anyone had tried to shoot people in black light before and how you did it. Any other pointers on the shot would be great! Thanks!!

    Never tried it, but I find your image has a very surreal look / style to it.
    Could lead to some interesting things, I'm thinking some nudes with glow in the dark paint or something similar.

    Thanks for the inspiration!

    you dont need glow in the dark paint...try splashing some good old liquid tide on some stuff and check it out under a black light. it'll look like csi ;)

    Great shot! Looks like it should be on the cover of a mens birthday card. Then you open it and it says something cheesy like "Hope you have a glowing birthday...."

    It's nice, but the skirt is too much distraction. :(

    Really amazing shot. i've never seen anything like this.
    the entire composition is stunning/sexy and leaves you wishing for more.

    Thanks for all the comments......
    I was looking for a little input on the lighting and the composition. Because I used some black light in the shot there is a lot of noise. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to shoot it w/ less noise. I only had light sources..........Black light above and a changing colored light to the left.

    Yes, very nice picture. Sexy. :)
    I think it would be better if we could see your face too though.

    I looked at your exif... (Why does that sound dirty, lol)

    ISO 1600. That's where the noise is coming from. Though, by the looks of it, the 5D has pretty clean high ISO images.

    At high ISO, you really need to nail the exposure to get the cleanest possible image.

    I would try a lower ISO, but that will make your exposure times longer. If you can stay very still, you could still pull it off.
