As I indicated in the post - I stole that idea from Frank! (credit where credit is due). It's Lexan clear plexiglass over black seamless. I could only find sheets locally in 3 X 6 (wanted 4X8 - so I went with two and merely PS'd the seam out (she's lying over it for the most part to cover it up). Glad you like it (thx. Frank).

Hi,
I also have to take the seam out :D.

In the interest of simplicity:

One halogen lamp bounced off a white wall to her immediate right. Another halogen lamp 8ft directly in front aimed slightly toward the ceiling (so aprox. 25% of the direct light was hitting her face).

Amazing photos Kalypso! RESPECT!

I think this thread is very helpful. We should talk to Steve about setting up a section for model photography & lighting examples.

While not a bad idea in my mind, there is already a good deal of this info here, if more spread out. In the "Flash-Studio" forum, there is much about the lighting aspect. In the "People Forum" there is much about both. Also, Kalypso has a sticky post indicating an upcoming 'tutorial' section on lighting. Possibly the subject is being covered in too many diverse areas for now, but a lot of info is already here. What you seek could probably be incorporated into the existing "Flash Studio" forum, possibly with a slightly edited name. This would prevent missing info already posted and too much hunting around the various forums to find it.

Good idea...I'll move this & some of the other studio lighting threads up into the Flash (Studio) section. BTW, my 'tutorial' is actually going to be a FAQ (but maybe a sticky for people to post their lighting setups might be helpful).

Even more simple...

Dimage 7i, 4 second exposure in a totally dark room using a small 2-AAA penlight to "paint" the light on her...

What do you mean by "paint" the light on her?
