    I did another retro/hollywood glamour shoot last night, this time with the talented model Danielle. She was fantastic to work with. I only had to request a turn here or an angle there, she basically just busted out tons of good poses. Makeup by Jennifer. As usual, polite CC&C welcome:

    Wow... These are really, really good. They have inspired me :) Each shot is great, but I really enjoy 3 also.

    How impressive! They are all good. I particularly like how you arranged the elements in #1. The light seemed a bit uneven on the face part, but that might be my impression only. The expression in #4 is stunning!

    "Even" lighting is evil - appropriate use of shadow gives three dimensionality. This was a butterfly lighting setup in most of these. Lighting for Hollywood glamour shots like these and producing this feel is imho a bit more difficult than typical portraiture.

    Thank you very much for the compliments guys!

    Yeah lighting is probably the thing I concentrate on most :) I read, study and try very hard, and practice a lot. There were 4 lights in the first setup, and three+bookend in the last one. Everything was set up for this style of shoot from the get-go, including colors, makeup, everything, knowing they would become B/W shots in the end.

    I did very little retouching here; these were almost "straight out of the camera." Just some minor skin touchup, very little, and zero skin smoothing.

    Thanks again
