One of the new tricks I experimented when shooting Gabriella was rim lighting. Adding light from the side, slightly behind creates a rim around the body and face. It adds dimension to the portrait. Not to mention that it separates the subject from the background. This is specially important if your subject has dark hair. I like what it does to the curves of the body.
Lighting setup for these pictures:
– Alien Bees + beauty dish + grid. Right side of camera. Above Gabriella.
– Alien Bess + strip box. Left side of camera. Behind Gabriella.
