My friend Elly is an amazing photographer and was willing to be on the other end of the camera for the first time. She has always wanted to learn more about posing and lighting so I gave her the lesson the hard way, but she loved it and here are the results.

Always teaching... seems I'll never stop.

She looks so gorgeous and stunning with the kind of lighting applied to her. So beautiful and elegant the way she has posted for you too!

Thank you so much everyone

THis was a new lighting technique I've trained myself in understanding. All shots were between ISO 640 and 2000 mostly using the natural available light and placing my lights and used gels to match the match the available light.

There was supposed to be a video guy taping this shoot but alas I ran short on help

Cool shots! Very interesting setting too.

The lighting is perfect, the first one makes her appear to have an oddly athletic build compared to the others.

She makes a great model. Amazing, the same model with different outfit.

Aside from the obvious about your stunning portraits, I love the lighting Chris.
Her posing is great too - you either choose such great subjects or you work them perfectly to pose - I do believe the latter is the case...
