The 2nd upload from my shoot with Ryo -
I messed around with bg textures for this for ages, and gave up in the end - it looked best as a plain gradient,
the bg tone coming from a curve layer adjustment I made, which I liked.
Lighting set-up was a gridded 55cm beauty dish at 45degrees 1-1.5m above subject, 2 rear strip lights for rim-lighting, and a 2m white bounce umbrella, set up behind where I was shooting from for added fill light.
Thanks for looking.
