Could you tell us about the lighting. I see that she has beautiful light projected on her face. What type modifiers did you use?

The original lighting idea was a large octa above the model pointing down and a smaller softbox on the floor camera right pointing up at the model. But that wasn't sufficient to lit her face well.. So instead of rearranging the whole light set up, I just quickly added another strobe with a gridded 18" silver reflector camera right and pointed it at model's face..

Ahh, it worked like a charm! You do wonderful work and I particularly love your compositions.
