1. Interesting and creative use of digital technique

Simple, but quite original

3. The lighting is quite dramatic, but also seems pretty simple

If I were to venture to guess, I'd say there is probably a large rectangular soft box placed high above on camera left and some sort of frontal soft ambient lighting source in line with the camera used as a fill. So there's probably just two light sources for the entire shoot. If I were to do something like this, I'd probably use the video function of a digital SLR while the model moved artistically with the shutter speed set very low, and then merge the images in photoshop.

4. It reminds me of the painting with light technique.

6. You're funny

I'd love to see you replicate this process that is apparently incredibly simple.

Thanks in advance.

5. Saw them a couple weeks ago

The online images are beautiful but the prints are truly gorgeous.

7. If a large print it would be a real knockout.

8. They were pretty large

If I had to guesstimate I'd say they were 40"x40"

9. I'm too cheap to print larger than 8X10.
