Nude Torso and a Box

This is a digital image processed in Lightroom. Exposure and brightness were adjusted and the image was rendered to a monochrome using a Lightroom preset.

One  light was used. The light was placed to the right of the frame and in-front of the model. This was done to get  directional lighting to show off the muscularity of the model.

Two lights was used, one was placed to the right of the frame and even with the model. The second light was even with the model to the left of the frame.  This lighting gave smooth even highlights  and deep shadow.

The image was diffused to create an ethereal feeling, If you’re interested in the technique I used ask, it’s not a secret.
