We had just finished shooting some images with a Halloween theme when Blaise the model had suggested we do a shoot topless.
We then started to experiment with posing shapes that would compliment the curves of the gown.
The original image had Blaise with her head tilted back but I struck on the idea of creating an 'S' curve with her body.
I cropped her head from another image that was looking forward and then cut'n'pasted various pieces of hair from other images to really fill out her mane of hair.
Lighting consisted of a beauty dish on the right and angled down and a grided strip box behind her to the left.
That streak of light on the left was cause by a flap on the back of the strip box that hadn't been properly closed.
