I like it, and I know you know what you're doing, but
in looking at the EXIF through my IE's EXIF Viewer plugin, it shows you shot this with your CP8700. Why that, and not your D70? Did you use one of those pc cord sync cube thingies to attach the strobe? (I have one, just don't know what it's called).
Would've rather seen a tiny little "Mona Lisa" smile coming from her mouth, instead of such a pursed lips look. It enforces the thinking that the corset is as uncomfortable as it looks! :shock: Well done Dan.
The reason this was shot with the CP8700 was for the low ISO (was shot at ISO 50) , and I needed to make a 20 x 30 print so the extra MP helped out a little. I was picking up a lot of noise on the background with my D70. Also I did not have a wide enough lense to shoot the crop I wanted with the D70. This was shot at 15MM focal length. As for firing my strobes, I have a set of pocket wizards that I used just like my D70 in the hotshoe.
She wanted an 1800's feel to the shot. The chair is from 1870, and to all that says she looks uncomfortable, well yes she is, that thing is reducing her waist by about 5 - 6 inches.
