Photo of the day: Kimber 330

More of Kimber Collins... we had four lighting setups in the studio, and four models, and after everyone had a chance to practice with each model, they all rotated counter-clockwise to the next lighting setup and the photographers went around again. Here, instead of a black backdrop, Kimber was posed against white; and instead of the strongly directional lighting in the last setup, this one was more balanced. Still, you have to have a brighter key light and dimmer secondary to create dimension. One thing that really works for me about this image is that the brighter light is in the direction she's facing, yet she's looking over her shoulder, so you get the bright light on the face, with vivid color in the blue mask and red lips, contrasted against the darker shadows on her shoulder. The contrast of bright and subtle color really works for me.
