I've recently started using studios/models, something different to my 'usual' stuff to get me out of my comfort zone. I quite like this one, let me know what you think - all comments appreciated.

I like this and have been doing the same as you new to model/studio, still trying to get the lighting like this not sure I have enough room in the lounge.

How many lights and where place would be nice to know.

It is always nice to work outside the comfort zone - and i think you are getting into an area that is interessting.
I agree with Paul - light is a big thing ...
The light here needs more, cause even it is artistic ... it is to little
I am not an studio expert - and will leave it more to people like Paul ... but what i can see on the posing ... you are on the right track
(Let your crazy ideas get loose ... )

I've never worked in a studio, but I think the lighting in this is great. Very subtle, very effective. Excellent image.

Thanks for the kind comments guys.
Paul, just a single light, with a snoot, placed to the left of the shot at a similar height to the model.

lighting in a small room is hard - you can't get the lights (or the camera) as far away from the model as would be ideal.

However, this is pretty good! I think that it's effective as it stands, and could be even better if there was a touch more tone in the shadows (and I realise it may be a deliberate ploy to conceal details that would spoil the effect!)

Being similarly picky, there are two main areas of interest, and they're at opposite sides of the frame: the face, looking off to the left, and the legs on the right. Some sort of compositional linking device would probably be good (and certainly more conventional).

And this is far better than what I produce outside my comfort zone: well done!
