    Congratulations @Myksyk! Stunning shot.

    Could you tell us a bit about it? I'm fascinated by some of your photography, because they're not something I'd even conceive of, let alone be able to execute. I'd love to know both the thought process and the setup behind it.

    Thanks Gregor Samsa.

    This is a studio shot with the UK model Ivory Flame (well actually shot in a local hall with a studio set up for the day). The intent was to do something a little different from a straightforward pose and more toward a storytelling image (although it doesn't quite meet that objective I think). The idea was simply a shot of a beautiful woman from an unspecified period but most likely 19th century, writing at a table at night by candlelight. I'd seen similar images and wanted to try my hand.

    The various items are sourced at a local antique shop and hired for the day. The vase and flower were shot separately and composited in after the fact - I thought they added a little.

    Shot on a Canon 5DIV. Elinchrom lighting with large 135 Octa top left, strip light to right back for some edge lighting and a small flash on the floor to throw a touch of light on the backdrop. Post-processing to refine the light, colour grade etc etc to create the feel that I was looking for.
