Just superb, the lighting and exposure could not have been any better, beautiful skin tones. What lighting set up was used here? Regards Phil

Thanks for the kind remarks and the award, guys. Much appreciated!
Philpot, I used a 70cm beauty dish with diffuser to camera right in 45/45 position (or possible a little more head-on) and a silver reflector to the left to bounce back some fill. I placed my grided striplight (one stop higher than main beauty dish light) between the black background and the reflector to light the Ice Queen's hair and a gridded small silver reflector dish to the right provided the nice spotlight behind the Dark Queen's head.

I went to the shoot with this kind of setup in mind, not ever thinking it would be nearly as effective as this. It is easily the most involved lighting setup I have ever used! Grin

Difficult one to pose - to show off all makeup, nails, etc. Great light.
