Olga Vasilkova as model..... I wish it wasn'T an open challenge....:-P

hanks everyone, finally even Anastasia has got one ribbon. LOL!

some people asked me how I did the lighting on that one, it was a very simple trick really, I used pretty long shutterspeed of 1/30 and put my model in front of a huge softbox which made that light, bit overexposed with its purpose as a background. A silver reflector from the left side gave the wings a bit more light to let the structure go thru. And of course I had a wonderful graceful model, who is a professional ball room dancer :-) It helped a lot too...ah...one more thing, we had smth like 4 glasses of wine each before ;-) so it was even more fun.

your Anastasia the Russki

Nice! Ethereal. Unfortunately, the line running down disturbs the otherwise interesting flow.

Catching, how did you sort out the lightning for that?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/09/2006 12:46:14 AM
I like this, but I from my perspective the "wild hair" doesn't work.
03/08/2006 10:52:05 PM
I love the little wings.
