Amazing result for $28 ! Before I get my next set of expensive flash/studio light, I will see if I can replicate your results first

Really great knowledge sharing, I'm taking an on-line course and have heard it said its not the equipment its the photographer, but sometimes you have to see it to become a believer.

I think the real 'hidden' cost in your set up is the years of experimenting and practice you probably put in to get to where you are now.

Thank you for this useful post

The lovely photo stands on its own and speaks for itself without need of a back story, but the story behind the shot is terrific.

I usually find dilated pupils distracting (Anton Corbijnís portrait of Miles notwithstanding) but your use of the deep pupils with this model is compelling.

I would look forward to attending any workshop led by you.

Hey Denny,

I'm with you on the dilated pupil thing - I usually have a spider-light set in the studio pointed at the model to keep those puppies at bay - but my exception is any image that is supposed to look...for lack of a better term 'bedroomy'. Really, anywhere that would be subtlety lit - a candle lit scene in a restaurant for example - when the dilation suits the indicated ambient. Then I find fully light-filled eyes distracting. At the end of the day, lighting, hands, eyes, body line and expression - they all need to be telling the same story.

It's a good reminder to folks feeling GAS symptoms and to remember that gear for the most part only play a small roll within its limitations. I'm sure you could have done the same with a entry level crop DSLR and a budget prime lens with nearly identical results

Actually, an iPhone camera with one of those 'telephoto' lens adapters attached wasn't terribly far off.
