About the Image

This advertising beauty lingerie photograph was shot in a hotel room in northern Germany. I have shot with Esther several times in the past and she is always fabulous. Great look, great shape and into modeling.

The light is from a strobe and is heavily controlled by the wall on one side, using a Sunbounce "Black Hole" fabric on a Pro frame as a flag on the other side, and a Sunbounce Mini reflector used as a flag to keep light off of the scene. I had a lighting problem, the strobe light was bouncing off of the bed's white linens, onto the white wall, illuminating the room. The mini stopped this. You can see this in the 2nd and 3rd BTS photos below.

I wanted a narrow shaft of light for the model to lay in to draw attention to her and not the rest of the scene. When I got the light where I wanted it, Esther did the rest.
