In a darkened room

February 10th, 2010
(Olympus E520, Zuiko 12-60mm. Self-timer)

The lighting is quite obvious: one FL50R on 60×60 (cm) softbox on cam-left, 1/16 power @ 12mm zoom. FL36R on cam-lelf, below, 1/32 power @ 42mm. Only directions of light matter here, to control the position of the shadow & the gradient in the background. Took me less than one hour of shooting.

The blue is created by setting the camera’s color balance to 2300K. Quick post-processing since the RAW is pretty much what I want. By the way, this looks much better in AdobeRGB on my monitor. First time I see the colors change drastically when converting from AdobeRGB to sRGB profile for Web publishing. But no choice 🙁

Forgot to say, please take your time to view this photo in large (1600×600). Recommended :)!

    Good try 🙂 Since there’s no other model, you look much sexier than the previous shot 😉 😛 (should flag the post as ‘mature content’)

  2. OMG… “sexier” for me – I’m speechless, haha 😐 :))
