^^^ GREAT shot, Pham. Love the colors and the lighting as always.

Two from me:

EOS 5D mII
EF 85 f/1.2L (@ f/2 for #1 & f/1.4 for #2)
1/8000th
ISO 100

Lighting was the same in both shots.
Key light was 580EX II in 45" white reflective umbrella just out of frame camera right.
Rim light was a bare 430EX II about 6ft to the left of Adrienne.
She's being backlit by the late-afternoon (4:30ish) sun.

anybody have recommendations on what to use to calibrate my monitor? I'm wondering if I can just adjust my gamma and fix it. cause my colors are great. Just need the screen to be able to see the darker details.

I really like number 1. The balance in lighting is almost perfect here.

yup two bare flashes positioned in the middle of the big numbers on the floor and outside of the frame and pointed straight at the subject. 1/8 pwr (might be 1/4 pwr not sure!) + 28" apollo softbox just outside of frame pointed at subject @ 1/4 pwr.
