    Wonderful... everything! I really like the lighting and the diagonal placement of your model. Love the whole off-beat approach!

Hi Lisa,
I really enjoyed working with this model. I had a large light source, about 4X6 feet on camera left. A reflector about the same size was on the opposite side. There is a second light behind the muslin backdrop with a warming gel to create the color behind her. I had a small light on the camera to put a little stricture in the face and add sparkle. The model was fun to work with, good attitude. I got a lot of good things from the session.
Thanks, John Siskin
P.S. There are a couple of lighting articles here at BP about lighting portraits. You might want to check www.betterphoto.com/article.asp?id=129.
