Project for my class.   My theme was film noir lighting/feel.  I used a hair lighting  setup w/ a grid to seperate the subject from the background and add a sense of drama.  It really kind of a did a good job of isolating the subject.  Taken and retouched by me.
 This was a project for class and it was actually a two part piece.  My theme was a witch.  I wanted to create a sense of mystery and intrigue. I used a single lighting setup because the final composition would have the "witch" flying in the night sky so the only thing illuminating her would the moon in the night sky. Hence, the single light source. Next i also used fan to make it look like she was flying.      Next I shot myself outside on  my balcony. It was dark at night, so i used a flash called an Alien Bee. This is a special kind of flash unit that is both a self contained power source and  the flash itself.   Once that was done, the next stage of the project could commerce.  Post processing was probably just as big if not even bigger than the shooting part.  Post processing is where the project really took a sense of personality.  I added the moon, the clouds, and the most challenging part, the model.  She blended into the background pefectly which really helps to add a sense of mystique.
 The hottenders are a local entertainment brand, who do bar tending and event/club promotion.  They needed some images for their social media (twitter, facebook, etc.)  I used a single large soft box proving illumination from the right and then then on the left, I used a large 7ft tall reflector to even out the light.  All images were taken and retouched by me.
