Thanks so much! I'm glad you like it:)

Well, the apartment I was living in had virtually no lights, so everything was lamp lit and the room was generally dark. I took two desk lamps (the ones with the movable necks) and faced them tward the model. I didn't use a flash. I also played with the contrast in Photoshop to make the picture more dramatic. I'm not sure which I like better - here's the original.

Thanks again :)
