I love this photo as well as the other portraits in your gallery. Do you have a studio? I'd also love to know what kind of lighting you use for these photos. I'd love to get that same effect. #6228823

Thank you all!
Sheryl, Yes, I have a studio. Last years I professionally am engaged in a photo. I have some flashes "Bowens". But very often I use no more than two. Certainly, it is important to use a reflector in work. For example, this photo has been made with use only one flash on the right, and at the left there was a reflector. Then, I have translated a photo in black-and-white colour and have added a few colours. I am sorry for bad knowledge of English language:( #6229557
