I know we are all different, but the light painting is not really my cup of tea. For this lovely young lady to keep that pose for the period you were playing with the light must have taken some doing!

Very creative and innovative studio shot I guess the light painting was done either before or after your model was photographed on set.

@Curly: No - this isn't clear (sorry) - the exposure is entirely flashlights working around the model for thirty seconds. I was introducing the technique to two other photographers. So after setting the cameras - two of us released the shutters. The third turned off the overhead lights - counted down from three - and then proceeded to make their way around the subject with a flashlight in each hand. We had a blast and Cole was so patient with us.

My idea is that since we have the various captures each from three different positions and with different lenses - - - to take our three best and create a montage. The other two said they're willing so now it's just a matter of our getting together to make it happen.
