I commented and d this a long time ago. But it popped up in my inbox through the DD group again. Such a wonder peice of work! The lighting is so perfect, and I love how sexy it is, without showing too much. The lack of color really pulls at me too. The bad environment, with a beautiful model to break all that up... Just an over all amazing image.
I use all kinds of flashes. Lately I'm mostly using Speedlights with radio triggers because their lightweight and I don't really need THAT much power, but this shot is done using some big 400w strobes powered with a long long cord from a nearby cafe
