Very beautiful in colors, composition, poses, and the clarity of these just pops. I love the first 3. However, I am going to jump in and say the lighting in the rest of them is very confusing to me, visually, and leaves me with the impression of 'blotchiness.' It's like the kicker (is that the right term?) is competing with the main. Am I totally off, and alone, in thinking this?

Except for No3 the lighting is the same for all the photographs. What differs is the processing technique. To create more depth and the "pop" one talks of I have to set the lighting up in a certain way and then process in one of two ways but each of them enhances the contrast between pixels. This in turn can create Blotchiness in the skin tones - especially in B&W - therefore it necessary to return to smooth out the blotchiness again. A never ending but necessary circle.

The lights have a one stop difference and the strip light is feathered to soften the effect. You can see from the nose and other shadows that there is no competion but on the arms and legs it creates a very nice graduation which can be dodged and burned to again create depth....

I hope that this explains more about the photos and technique.

It does explain more. I'll study your pictures further and try to apply what I read here. I wonder, though, as the model moves, does it change slightly the effect of the light or the pattern? It just seems different in the last one when compared to the first 3.

Thanks for the response!

Yep... I produced that just cos of her look..... the girls wanted it. She actually moved backwards out of the "perfect" light scenario....so the lighting altered radically...
