    Looks pretty good. She helps a lot with that. I might want to see some light falloff on her face upper body to go along with her darker bottom half maybe?

    Somehow the lighter sections of her skin don't quite look real or natural to me, Jeff

    That's pretty much a direct effect of using grids - that's what grids do.

    Nice shot Mike. Not overly nuts about the speculars on the chin and chest, but that's a matter of personal taste. Retouching looks very clean. :thumbsup:

    Re: Lighting with Grids

    Ok, I finally got time to create this lighting diagram. It's CRAZY season

    Technical Info:
    Main Light: 7" parabolic with grid @ f11
    Fill light: 3' x 4' soft box @ f5.6 1/2 - This was coming across her body to help create the shadows.
    Edge lights: Two 1' x 4" strip soft boxes @ f 5.6 1/2

    Yeah looks like it was a wide grid ( honeycombs) on the lamp.

    I think it was about a 30 degree grid spot on a 7 inch or parabolic reflector

    beautiful, but her skin looks quite unnatural to me (like a mannequin, sorry)
