thanks guys, i really had a blast on this shoot. I had been dying to do one of these and now i cant wait to do another. learned so many little things to keep in mind next time and also how to improve.

for starters don't shoot in a bar area when happy hour is getting out :)

two flashes, YN 460s, it changed from image to image, for instance in one i had the main light to my left on a stand in a small hand held 16" portable softbox. and you can see the second one fired back at the camera. sometimes i kept in in frame other time i used it to just back light her a bit. i enhanced the flare with lens flare in post, image 2 is how it looked without the enhancement.

for image 4 the main light was in the same spot, the secondary flash was extended at 7' up to the right and behind the model low power try to mimic a street light. the main light stayed in the same spot mostly and i moved the second light around to get different effect.

I might do something with the crease in her upper arm in #5.

thanks this is the type of feedback i was hoping for. i thought about that myself on myself, i kind of like the definition it gives, maybe I'll dodge it up so it isn't so pronounced.

yes i can go wider, the problem is the street was tight and i though they looked better cropped, unless you think a parking meter and pole is interesting. :) i'll keep it in mind to find a better location for the next time i do this.

First, great set and a great model so congrats on that...

That's exactly what's wrong with a lot of photographers...they try and remove every tiny "imperfection" and make everything perfect. That crease would be there on everyone you shoot in a pose like that.

Leave it in mate, it's exactly how she is and you've captured her exactly how she is.

But that's me...what do i know?!

This is a really good set and I love the lighting and ratio to ambient. Only change is that I would PP her underarms a little more. Oh and #6 is my favorite.
