Taken yesterday in my ermmm...home studio,well it's a room with some lights Wink
Lit with one softbox & a nice fancy triflector opposite.

Inspired by Madonna's 'Like A Virgin' Album cover which was released in 1984.
I suppose really it should be in sepia but...what the heck,I'm just a rebel at heart Wink
The shoot was part of my 2013 calendar project,featuring colleagues from work with a theme of the Pop/rock star(s) you wanna be.....heck...you should see the Weather Girls & Lady GaGa !!!!!

I know,I know,it's dark...I likes it that way,I need you to look at her face first,not particularly the surroundings. Wink
Yep,added a couple of soft textures,resistance is indeed futile !

Thanks for taking the time to look.
Janet xx

Thanks guys.
Hi Paul,I certainly don't mind anyone having a go at a modification,sometimes it's a good way to see something in a different way.I like the colours you have ended up with on the mod you have done,going towards the cooler palette does make it feel different...thankyou.
I wouldn't have ticked the box if I didn't want folk to have a go with it.

Great lighting -- an excellent portrait. Do your co-workers realize what a treasure they have in you as a co-worker?

Lol Walter,not sure 'treasure' is quite the right word but they do take advantage of me sometimes....I love it really....... When I get these strange ideas for photography, the folk at work nearly always come up trumps with the stuff I need so,I have to give something back Wink

Darren,not sure the rest of the images will be quite so alluring...lol..we will see. I'll be doing Abba,The Village People,Michael Jackson & Byonce to name a few,already had Lady Gaga & The Weather Girls round for a shoot,wow,not many folk that can drop those kinda names Wink Wink

Thanks for the mod Michael,just a wee bit overdone on her shoulder & lots brighter than I had intended but it shows off her hair very well.

I can see where your coming from Janet. I do like her look - but perhaps a little more light on her face to enhance the eye make-up for me.
Just knew there would be textures - your such a 'Material Girl ' Wink

Truly beautiful and had to upload a mod. I have added a very soft Fractalius filter to her hair and dress to give a soft highlight.

Hope you like it

Hi Janet, I thought your model had a lovely face, but her buxom figure detracted from her face. As you said, look at her face first, but it's dificult. I made some mods in PS and softened the area around her, as well as cropping, to make sure everyone would look at her face. I hope you like the mod and happy snapping

Excellent work and what a great idea for a calendar.
I bet everybody involved had a lot of fun.
Hope we get to see other months!
Modifications are all so different.
I like the light on her face. There is a lot to look at in this image.
