I was playing around with some more dramatic portrait lighting over the winter and invited a friend of mine from college to be a test subject instead of my usual manequin, it was a rather impromptu shoot. Not really much to say about it other than that, hopefully it can be enjoyed for what it is.

Well just a friend is a good title because she definitely does not seem interested in modeling for you. Too bad. Your lighting was good. I like the effect but its pretty wasted here.

Don't know what DiskoJoe is on about, I think the pose is great! The lighting is fantastic and she's hot. The perfect combination. Nice!

Edit: The portrait version doesn't do the lighting justice. The landscape version is awesome.

Women dont give me this look when I point my camera at them. I bet this doesnt happen to James on the regular either.

Sadly I do get some rather sarcastic looks.

Ask and you will receive. Reconstructed as well as I could from memory given that the photo was taken a few months ago. Power settings may be a bit off but the point is that the two strip boxes have roughly twice as much light as the large octa.

Indeed you do! I would say to work on that. You want them to feel comfortable and relaxed. Pictures come out better that way.

That's a joke...

We were playing a word game because she was a newer model and was running out of poses so I told her to do whatever she feels fits with the word "play-doh" because I ran out of words and pulled that out of nowhere..that's the "wtf does playdoh look like as a pose" face.

I like to have fun with my shoots.

Most real professional models I've worked with are given a concept then cycle through poses themselves, she was a new model and wanted to work on this.
