Lately I've been enjoying returning to photos in my archives. It's always great to look back on photos I never edited with fresh eyes.
This was achieved with two lights and a curved reflector. The key light was a 17" white beauty dish. The shadow on the camera left side of the face was created in camera using a 24x36 Matthews flag. There is a gridded light on the background to create some separation on the shadow side. The Cheetah BowFlector provides the characteristic curved catchlight to draw attention, emotion, and mystery to the eyes.
