It was a grided reflector dish high and direct on the subject with a slave speed light directly behind the model's hair. I wish I would have placed it a little lower but the effect came out nicely.

Looks great. I like the effect. The more I shoot, the more I realize it is light, not megapixels or fancy lenses, that makes a picture better than a snapshot. Easy to buy the gear and fancy lenses, though. Thanks for the reminder that a good subject and the right lighting is the key.
