Black and white
This is a swimsuit shot made a while ago, on a lovely model from Texas, America, Tara. It is a simple picture with clear elements.
The model has a strong black hair, nice contrast with her fair skin, the main studio light on the model, in this shoot 3 Elinchrom light unit, 2 powered by generators and one a monoblock for background fill; her while swimsuit, the white studio background was lit while enough to differentiate from the subject. The choice for the high heel is black, so that it balance with the dark hair and the picture will not look top heavy. The use of just black and white delivers this image with a simple and subtle presentation. Shot with Sinar Hy6 mounted with eMotion 75LV, Schneider AFD 80/2.8.
