Great shot. But it looks like a CGI to my untrained eyes.

Fantastic shot as usual.  Great lighting and the eye shadow is really cool.

And what would be a trained eye ? more like one of those 'portrait plugins'.

This is not critique so I won't voice an opinion.

I really like this set. What interested me the most was the backgrounds. I watched the video but it wasn't clear to me: was this some interesting location you scouted, or did you create the backgrounds on a set?

Good to see a photographer using Pentax doing something and doing it well.  As always,  amazing.

Thanks. Are we seeing the ambiant light of the bathroom, or did you light the background with more strobes? It's the balance with the key I thought was really effective. I'm guessing just the snoot would only have lit the girl leaving everything else in black without extra strobes?

Used a very slow shutter speed. I didn't want any light bleed from the source light, thus the snoot. Shot at 1/4 to 1/15th of a second at around f2.0 using a Pentax DA 50mm f1.4 lens and a Pentax K5 body. Ambient light using the dimmer switch to control the intensity.

Great insight, much appreciated. I don't know why I'm so "frightened" to do things like that. I am now determined to bring ambient light into my next shoot!

The snoot shot was done using a flash head.

Gorgeous. Love the tid-bit of freckles on her nose and the color palette of the image.
