With Hair of Burnished Copper II by 

After the overwhelming response to the image of Holly from last night…I thought I would add the matching image to the pair.

Shot on a plain dove grey backdrop with a single beauty dish and the backdrop lit with a softbox.

Finished in photoshop with non destructive layering.

I always envisaged these as a pair and have just printed them out to frame for a local gallery! I think they look so good together….

    mmm,, whats a beauty dish?? still so much to learn….

  • A beauty dish is a big circular reflector about 2.6 ft inches diameter that fit on your flash head…so called because it give a particular light that was used for make-up/fashion and beauty photos!
