Thank you so much, everyone! Anne came to me for photos to enter in the Wilhelmina Over 40 Modeling Competition. The lighting set-up is as follows: Two black "bookends" (bookends are foam core 4x8 foot boards painted black on one side to absorb the light) one either side of Anne, a Profoto flash head in a 2x3 foot Photoflex Softbox above & directly in front of her & a silver reflector just below her chest to reflect the light from the Softbox back into her face. The background was an unlit storm gray seamless paper backdrop. I retouched in Photoshop & used Imagenomic's Portraiture Plug-In set to "Low Key." I'm finding that the best lighting is usually the simplest.

Take Care,
