Yeah, I had two speedlights, one on the left of the frame through a reflecting umbrella and a smaller one on the right through a beauty dish. I didn't use a background, I just had about 5 metres between the model and the back wall of my living room, and used a fast shutter so that there was no ambient light in the shot. The pictures were taken in the middle of the day so it wasn't especially dark even indoors.

Originally my plan was to have far more contrast but it turned out not to work so well, there were just disembodied bits of skin floating around in darkness so I ended up pushing exposure and reducing contrast by quite a lot in post.

I think it worked really well. I think your models are actually better served by a low key setup like this than the more brightly lit shots you posted a while back.

I'd echo everyone, I think the setup works - lighting looks the best to me on the last shot.

Some photos on a day walk in the Peak District, with usual British weather...

Can't remember the last time I had the pleasure of posting twice in a row! Took these while doing the second half of the North Downs Way, one of the National Trails in the UK.

Those are beautiful, Moses, but that first one is especially great, IMO.

Really love the light on the path at center of the first shot. That's freaking great. I might crop it a slight bit tighter to bring it out, but you wouldn't want to lose the way it sits in the middle of this dense, rich vegetation. The last shot of the fields is also especially great.

Thanks for the comments! Khaldun - that's an interesting point. I think I had some thoughts along those lines when I was pping the photo, the left and right sides seem a bit unbalanced - but I think in the end I decided not to touch it as the "window" at the end of the path was pretty much bang on centre (and it saves me time and effort post-processing  Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?). I might have to go back and play with it one day.

Nice stuff Moses. Looks like you were out near where my family is based - Broughton and Mottisfont.
