Excellent work Chris...

Simply excellent work.

That first one is indeed the winner, but darn good work overall.

Can't wait to see more! This may be my very favorite portrait shot of yours! Love the composition, the pose, the lovely subject, the background, the lighting... dig it!
Well thank you Hamid and now that the rest are up I hope you enjoy them as much as possible. I believe I've just set my bar to a new extreme for my next series which is a double edged sword.

Nice, now where's the rest? Of course all of your work is great, but I am really interested with the stuff you do with models. Will keep checking your site for updates.


Vic
Hey Vic, thanks, and the rest are now up and also on my website.

Wow, That is very nice. Great lighting and the background is so artistic with a touch of aged wine feel.

Wanna see more!
Thanks you James

really nice series.. I like image number 7 on your seccond sett.. good pose and good back light..

the first image is awsome.. really sexy pose.. altough would like more light to the face.
Thank you and the light on the face was actually what I wanted. It was a from the light into the dark scene and wanted tons of contrast on her face. It's going to be a personal thing, but in this instance it was because of what I was hoping for in terms of an image.

Thank you Rob.

Very nice photos Chris I like the first and last ones the best. She looks like she's ready to pounce on you in the first one
Lol, thank you and yes that was exactly what I called the pose when I was talking to her. I said lean forward and look like spiderwoman ready to spring into action.

Chris, you are a master of backlighting!
And the sidelighting of #5 of the second set is simply stunning.
Yep, the very first one is a classic - great work with the lights - one question on that first shot: did you have a fill flash at the camera top left to complement the tungsten light at the model's top left?
The effect is awesome!
You rock!
Lol, I'd rather not be a master, but I'll take it as a fair compliment lol.

The lighting setup is a little hard to reverse engineer but it's like this:

1 Promaster 7000M flash at 1/8 power on a light stand about 6 feet up and pointed down at a 45 degree angle. I have it gobo'd so there is no spill light and also have an amber gel to warm it up.

1 Promaster 7000M at 1/8 power on a light stand about 5 feet up and aimed across like a headlight, also gobo'd so there isn't any spill light. I gelled it with a blue gel to match the light from the new headlight.

1 Promaster 7000M at 1/4 power shot into a silver umbrella at a 45 degree angle and about 4 feet up for fill and to give good contrast. Darken half the face to really set a mood.

Chris, for the first shot, you've got your umbrella set up high(i think high) camera left. But you're back light needs some explanation. It's nice and warm. Did you gel it? The fall off on the wall makes me suspect its gridded or a snoot on there. How close am I? I love that picture!

I did gel it. The background light on camera left is gelled with an amber gel to reduce it to about 3200K and I also have on the left in the background set with a blue gel to get it at about 6500K so it looks like a new car headlight. The main light is left normal and white balance set to 5500K.

I didn't use a snoot, but I did Gobo the light so it didn't come towards my lens or creep too far past the model. Basically I have cardboard I cover in black tape with velcro and basically have a barn door system to gobo the light.

didn't even notice the blue gelled light! (its sticking out like a sore thumb now!) I am somewhat proud because after posting the question I considered gobo usage.

Gobo's are great. I have a series made that velcro's to my flashes and they cost me the time cutting them out of cardboard and taping them black.

in my mind...

#1 is #1.... 8-)

Excellent series Chris. The pose is spot on, and well done on the lighting. So when do the Alien Bees get purchased, and you put your work up yet another notch... ??

Well done!!

Cheers,
Marc

Thank you Marc!

The bees will come once I pay off a few more things. Spring is coming and I can't sit in the studio on beautiful days!
