Key light is 22" x 22" softbox placed right of camera and up close to subject. Fill is bounced from umbrella 10' above the camera. Hair light was a light with snoot with grid above the subject placed on the shadow side and the background light with grid placed slightly to the highlight side of subject.

Technically a highly competent portrait - well lit, well posed, pin sharp and with spot-on exposure. The angle of the body leads nicely into the assymetrically placed backlight and the high viewpoint and slightly raised head give a natural line to the face with no over-stretching or compression of the chin. I would guess the sweatshirt was chosen for its harmonious colours.

Thanks, Rodney: sometimes we need an object lesson on the difference between a snapshot and a photograph in which some serious effort has been invested.

GREAT lighting, very nice.
Very 3D like and very jumping of the screen.

Thank you for the comments. You guessed correctly about the sweater.

Excellent shot. I cannot fault the lighting or the exposure.
