Carrie Lee

I've started to experiment a lot more with B/W images as I really don't do that much.

This was the first time New Zealander Carrie and myself had ever worked together and I must say, I'm pretty happy with the final results.

The lighting was a 2m parabolic umbrella on a boom set high and angled down so I could get a soft light but with some shadow.

Gorgeous portrait

I can look at this all day! I'm guessing red lipstick and no fill looking at the catchlights? You kept her skin texture which means you have high morals! :)

Nope, actually it was black lipstick and yes, 1 big ass parabolic umbrella used.

Thanks Scott, skin texture is very important!

My very first camera used b&w film. I love b&w. The lighting & shadows are excellent. The model is beautiful. I would watch or keep from placing the subjects in the middle of any frame. By doing so you create negative & unwanted spaces on both sides. Thank you for sharing this image
