    First time posting one of my photos... Did some shots for a friend of mine, wanted some "Dick Tracy" style detective agency type stuff... they want mostly B&W, but I tried this edit. Her eye is distorted by a magnifying glass...

    #1 is amazing! These all are. Just curious, what'd you use for lighting?

    Nice work! Really dig the theme play, including terrific props and wardrobe style. I like the framing, angles, lighting, tones, and all the rest.

    The first one is cool, but would be sooo much better (IMHO) if it were a standard detective-style magnifying glass that had it's frame in focus (or close to it) to really define what it is without any thought or explanation.

    All in all, well done!

    Thanks again for the c&c...

    The very first image was shot inside a coffee shop from natural light coming straight in through the window (my back was right up against it so we were pretty close to it)... I do have another one of these framed out so that you can see the entire magnifying glass, something about the tones in this one just appealed to me a bit more so thats why I chose this one to post.

    #1 Lighting was shot in a darker alley on a rainy day, we used one flash off camera with just a basic diffuser (and a clear plastic bag ;)) on a pole just above and to the left of the model.

    #2 Lighting was 2 flashes fired remotely one at head level off at her right and the other just in front and to her left but at a little higher than desk level, both with mini soft boxes attached.

    #3 the main light was to her left, a little higher than head level on a downward angle, and a second light just behind the typewriter (both with the mini soft boxes)

    #4 was a single flash on remote with the mini soft box about shoe level on an upward angle.
