This one is captivating. Looks like full blown totally racked up lens work with full megawatt Studio lights professional work here. If it wasnt for the frame type I would say it looks like it was captured with a medium format camera! It just can't get much better than what it is already.

Your work has earned my uptmost respect and admiration.

Thanks for sharing such great capture.

Thank you Marvin, you left some very cool comments, nothing I will soon forget. I'm truly flattered.
This was done in my dining room at home, all natural lighting with her hair held to the side of her face by her dad. The sliding glass door kept getting opened and ruining her hair. No studio lights or racked up lens, just my XTi. I actually taped cloth to the window where the sun was casting harsh light on her. There, I've given away my secrets, there are none, lol. I hope I haven't disappointed anyone! :)

Marvin ~ My intention in telling you how I did it was to encourage everyone in their photography work. I did work hard at making this image what it is, just not with really top of the line equipment. You're an awesome photographer and your comments are a GREAT encouragement to me. :)
