Justine stopped by the studio one day after work and we got up to all sorts of fun. I always fear shooting at the studio at night — not because I’m afraid of the dark — but because I have no natural light to rely on. Things worked out splendidly here, though, as my lighting is reminiscent of the typical Playboy style.
Here’s the break down:
Justine was on a dark brown leather bench, with matching couches in the background. She was lit with an Alien Bees monolight in a medium softbox with gold inserts, positioned really close and to camera left. The highlight on the right side is from a bare Nikon SB-900 in the background, to camera right. All of the background light on the wallpaper is from the table lamp.
These were shot with a Nikon D700 and a Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G ED IF AF-S VR, which might be my new favourite lens. Though the 85mm f/1.4 is really, really fantastic as well, and to this point has been my go-to lens on a D700.
