Grace in shadows

Thanx guys for all comments and thoughts on yesterdays shot. Today is a bit different.

I find these sort of shots hard to do, but I always wanted to try one, so heres my attempt. Same lovely model as yesterday, but different lighting. Any lighting tips people can provide would be most appreciated.

Somebody made a comment about yesterdays shoot that the trouble in clouds behind the model looked like they would engulf her and change her disposition. That comment inspired todays shot, she seems unphased by the darkness and is able to stand tall. How many times can we say we prevail in the face of adversity and come out unphased. Very unlikely.

Hi,
this kind of lighting is very interesting... : it gives us just few visible parts of the (lovely) model, witch resume as sort of white "curves" on darkness for face and body. Just like these paintings done with just few lines and curves of color and define a whole body by the subtle play of light/darkness
sk: thanx very much flaq

I'd say one of you best...I was reall bordering on giving you the 9 but then I noticed the dress near the bottom so you still get a high (but not high enough) 8.75/10
sk: thanx, I should have cloned out the dress
Dude was this done in a studio? sorry still behind you on this curve, can't offer any technical tips
sk: nah this was done outside, i ain't got studio space so i just make do with what i got. I am dreading the winter months, no more outside photography
beautiful light. nice, very nice!
sk: thank U

Absolutelt STONKING shot. It is bang on point, only thing that niggles is the dress, clone that area black QUICK, then you get yourself a coveted ..... from the Subster.

This shot's all about mood and it's packed full of it. great use of empty space (the shot would not have worked in portrait)

I like this shot. Particularly how her "spiky" hair defines the transition from light to darkness.
Honestly not too sure about her clothing at the bottom.
