Beauty Lighting

Another image from my recent shoot with Laura. (see post of August 1st.)  Faithful readers will recall some other images with this lighting setup, such as the first one in this post. It is often called beauty lighting or Oil of Olay lighting. There is a large softbox behind Laura, so the light wraps around her slightly, plus one light above and in the front. Usually with this lighting setup, it’s best to have the hair pulled tightly back, so that the wraparound of light is stronger on the cheeks, neck and shoulders. I wanted to try it here with Laura’s hair down.  It does give an interesting lighting effect on the hair. What do you think? comments always welcome!
