Chelsea

I don't shoot in studios much (none since moving to Abu Dhabi - don't have the equipment here, and don't know anyone that I can rent from).

Again, courtesy Dotun's Photo Lounge (www.dotunsphotolounge), I spent some time in the studio.  This one with a full Alien Bees lighting set up.  I don't remember the settings I used, but recall a ring-flash, hair light, back light, and maybe one other...

I know, I promised a more urban shot, but changed my mind (as the shot I had intended to put up was of Lirratai.  I have, I promise, worked with more than just two models.  So, rather than keep the pattern of Kimberly Brooke the Lirratai, I decided to mix it up a bit). 

Probably going to put up something from the wedding portfolio tomorrow.

very nice studio shot well lit
Excellent studio shot, Michael - shows how the gear pays off!
Michael Benjamin Studios: Yeah. Just what I need. A reason to spend more on gear...
I had no idea you know Dotun. Say hello next time you chat with him.
I see your model enjoyed teh session as much as much as you did. smile
What do you do in Abu Dhabi?
Michael Benjamin Studios: Yeah. Dotun is a fantastic guy. Taught me tons. You know him, as well?

Thanks for the comment - Abu Dhabi is home for now (I'm a security consultant by trade).
