Shot in 2007, this was my first attempt at reflected crosslighting with speedlights and Kayleigh’s first implied nude on a jewellery shoot. The reflectors were placed facing and behind her with the Nikon SB 800 speedlights on a moderate wide angle setting firing directly into the reflectors and minimal front fill from the on-board flash on my D200. This is low-tech studio work which prevents your workspace from looking like a film studio although you’ll need a model like Kayleigh to make the best of it.

From memory this shot had only a few milliseconds of editing apart from the black and white conversion so what you see here is more or less straight out of the camera.
