A bit of playing with some Christmas tree lights to creat the boken.

Lighitng: a two lights set up the main light to the lhs just above the models head and a hair light behind her to the rhs. Two set of christmas tree lights against a black background in the distance, shot a F4 to give the boken

Thanks for looking
