Had the pleasure to meet and work with Michelle Monroe in the studio recently.
This is one of the images I particularly liked from the session.
See what you think.

Single light set up with a honeycomb grid attached.

Thanks for looking.

Regards Richard.

Professionally done Rich

Cracking shot with excellent lighting, Rich. Just out of curiosity (I know the latter killed the cat..) is that something like a holly leaf tattooed just above where I shouldn't be looking?? Great pose. Dave

Beautiful model and super capture... love the juxtaposition of the curve of the model to the back of the settee. If I have one quibble... its that I would have liked to see the rest of the settee.

Quibbles, quibbles... yes I agree with Paul (Superoo) on the settee and I think the shadow cast by its arm is a little distracting. But these are minor things because the mono lighting has worked very well in highlighting the spectacular assets of this model (I bet half the viewers haven't even seen the shadow!). Which has us all clicking away so frantically... Wink

Michelle is a great model. I always thinks she takes a good photo no matter which photographer does it. I used to photoshop her photos for wallpapers for her website. I like this one very much.
A shame she's retired (last I heard).
Thanks 4 the share Smile
