Teaser Image from Shoot with Scarlett Edwards

I had a great shoot last night with Scarlett Edwards, a talented model. I was trying out some single light techniques to improve my lighting skills. For the image below I used a single strobe on a boom directly over the model. The light had a gridded reflector and barndoors to shape the light. We tried a lot of different poses. The idea was to illuminate the shoulders and upper buttocks while keeping the back in shadow. Initially all of the images were to be shot in black and white, but when I saw how her red hair popped off the black background, I had to go with colour.

I'll eventually post more from the set, but they will not be SFW or Facebook friendly.

F11 / 1/200th / ISO 100 - gridded reflector right above the model.
