I have a Calvin Klein style shoot event at my studio this coming Friday. Two days ago I did a test shoot with Kate who will be our female model for this event.
The lighting on the image is two softboxes front left and right of the model and two bare lights behind pointing forward to give a rim light round Kate. The background paper is white but looks grey (intentionally) because of the light fall off over distance (That's the inverse square law for the photography geeks out there).
Very minimal work in post production on the image. Simple Lightroom conversion to B&W.
More images from the shoot with Kate can be found here: http://photos.imb.biz/model/shoot/kate (but be warned some of the images are NSFW as they contain tasteful nudity).
If you are in the NW of England and wish to come to Friday evening's event and have a chance to shoot Kate yourself you can find full details on my website: http://www.ians-studio.co.uk/events/event/calvin-klein/ (You can also book to come from there too!).
