These are strikingly beautiful. Very, very well done. If it wouldn't be divulging trade secrets, could you be persuaded to share your lighting setup ?

lol, no trade secrets here.

- BG was a gridded 600EX-RT on the floor pointed up into some Thunder Grey seamless.
- Edge lights were Einsteins in large calumet strips with grids on them.
- Main light was JUST out of frame, about 1 foot away from the talent's head, pointed down at maybe 20 degrees from vertical, and was an Einstein with the 8.5 inch reflector with a 15 degree grid i believe
- That Phil Guy was another Einstein into a large Chimera SuperPro Plus softbox directly behind me.

The only reason the BG wasn't another Einstein was someone was borrowing my #5 that day.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Here are some more fun ones:

Thanks much for the explanation! And, since you offered, I do have another question for you: How much Photoshopping was applied to the images of the children a few posts back? I must say I *really* like the look of those.

I really do like the look of the last image.

My one suggestion would be to make the image be a square crop though.

4 lights... BG , 2 kickers, and a soft box as keylight. See eyes of kids for location of keylight.

I kinda liked the falloff towards the edges, but I can see how a square crop would benefit composition.

It looks like the focus was on the bracelets.


Don't try to confuse me with the facts, my mind is already made up.
