    this was taken inside a studio with the use of only the lighting from a floor to ceiling frosted window.

    I was trying to shawdows to highlight the curves of the body ;)

    Hmm, I see what you're going for , and for the most part I like it. I do wish, however, that there was just a teeny bit more light so that the shadow side wasn't quite so dark. It seems like there's a bicep there that could stand to be seen a little more ;)

    I am wondering if for next time I should have a reflector or something on the dark side? You know to give more light on those arms?

    Reflectors are good. Inexpensive too, and you can buy them at places like Wal-Mart and Staples. At those places reflectors are called 'white foam board'. ;)

    Keith is bang on! As well as foam board, you can also use poster-board which comes in a variety of colours, so if you want to 'tune' your light you can.
