This image is near and dear to my heart. It is from when I first started shooting and was still heavily experimenting on lighting and finding not only what worked but what I liked as a photographer. We shot a lot that day and did a lot of "lets try this". Finally I grabbed a bench from another room had her sit on it and placed my AB800 with beauty dish far came left, basically at the end of the bench and at her head level. To punch up the shadows and high contrast I worked a lot with my blacks and shadows in photoshop and lightroom until it has the feel and look that I was going for.
