These were done last night for Janell's significant other who owns some hair salons in the area. She appears to be his test subject for new and unique hairstyles.

My typical headshot setup with additional lights on the BG to create the slight gradient. Single strobe on the subject.

Your usual great work Scott. They should be very happy with these. I like the gradient effect quite a bit.....it gives the shots a product photo feel that really accentuates the hairstyle. Smart thinking!

I love these Scott............. but you probably know that I like the horizontal image and the positive/negative space thing!

These work very well............. and the second photograph is astounding in the tension it creates due to the model leaning/stretching forward........

Beautiful work! With excellent lighting.......... but you have to remember that I know NOTHING about studio lighting............. so feel free to ignore my comments! :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

Some of the best I've seen here...........

Thanks Fred!
Both are excellent but the second one rings my bell.
Thanks Woody. I wish I could take all the credit for that one. I wanted to do the profile, but Greg suggested the lean & stretch.

Thanks Stuart. The gradient was my idea. I've gotten bored with the solid bright white BG (unless specific for a knock out or ad).
Nice work. I love the eyelash in #2. Was the gradient done with lighting or in PP?
Thanks Roy. The gradient was done with the lights. I used my twin 30x60 boxes horizontal and feathered. The floor was black seamless to reduce any bounce.

Thanks Graeme. The horizontal here was really to allow for ad text. We're hoping to get some commercial business from the hair salons.

Here's a secret, I'll bet I don't know a heck of a lot more than you about studio lighting. But I'm trying!

I like the first one alot. I am not sure I like the tension in the second one, but thats just me. I think you're going to have quite a bit of material to work off of with this girl and her significant other.
