My dear friend Kat has a superb wardrobe and a fine sense of style. We decided to do a B&W shoot with dark clothes, her black hair, on a black background. She chose excellent dresses, gloves and a selection of jewellery that all seemed to fit together.
This turned out to be a bit of a lighting challenge - shooting in my living room is not convenient for what I wanted to try. The lighting is a single rectangular soft box directly above Kat's head, tilted to illuminate the black foam core background to a dark grey to provide some separation with her black hair an black clothing. She really had to play to the light - if her chin was down, the shadows were terrible Since the soft box was about 1 to 1.5 feet from her head, the vertical light fall off is very strong!
