In the hands of someone who understands light, B&W has no equivalent in the world of color. You have the touch of giving "just enough" to capture the eye, lead one into the details, but never giving it all away. Very nice indeed.

Love the shot. Being a beginning photographer I'm curious how the lighting is set up for a shot like this. the light is obviously coming from behind her, but what type and number of light are you using?

Thanks very much for your comment!

The shot was taken on a large white painted set with a radius at the bottom, but almost surely you could get the same effect with a 9-foot-wide roll of seamless white paper. The watery effect at the bottom comes from a sheet of heavy transparent vinyl material that I laid across the set on the floor.

The lighting was from a couple of Alien Bees strobes outfitted with 10x36-inch strip softboxes, oriented vertically, one on each side of the model. These were aimed so that mostly they would light up the white background, but a little of their light spills onto the model from each side, helping outline her shape and her hair. The light on her back is mostly reflecting off of the white background, I think. The light that's lighting her front is just the light that managed to reflect around the studio from the background, to the wall behind the camera, and back onto the model.

The studio also has a couple of vertical stacks of optically triggered strobe lights that can be aimed at the background to throw more light on it. I can't remember for sure, but I might also have used them for part of the background lighting.
