Thank you!

Old painterly very nice soft and dramatic, I am starting up in the fall and will be using the same setup. I'm currently looking into lighting .....any recommendations?

I mainly use one 60" octa and a vflat on the opposite side for fill. I used the Flashpoint Xplor 600

Thank you Barbara!!

You're welcome!

Beautiful photos! Look almost perfectly like paintings, I love them

Thank you!

Wow! Awesome work!


Those are great! I am curious how you did the lighting.

I primarily use one light in 60" octa then a white v flat for fill on opposite side.

I like your portraits. The eyes on second pic look like you use medium format. Well done!

I wished I had a medium format! :D

Beautiful work.

Thank you!

The second one is my favorite.

wow, very impressive. such a unique style.

Thank you!

very inspiring and beautiful work Barbara. I wonder what was your lighting setup in photo#2.

Thank you! That one was lit with one light in a 60" octa camera left. This is my setup in the majority of my work.

Superb shots Barbara, love those soft muted tones. Shot one - her expression is wonderful. not the same as, but has a similar quality to the Mona Lisa 'almost smile'.
I'd love to see a subtle hair-light on that shot... just a little backlight lifting that hair texture on the RHS (model's left).
Just an idea, I couldn't improve on these. Thanks Barbara.
