I'm just messing around with some lighting here. I wanted to get a soft, classic feel with the lighting - I'm pretty happy with the result. I just used a Poser primitive - a couple boxes, with the Y and X sizes increased to form a light panel. It would be the equivalent to using a couple large soft-boxes. I placed the main white light above and slightly to her left, and another one to her right with a bluish tint. I just changed the ambient color on each panel, and cranked the ambient strength up to around 2.0000 - 2.5000. I ticked the indirect light box in the render settings, then put the only actual light - a spotlight - directly behind her for a hint of rim light, If you look closely you can see the SSS in her right ear.
I tried many times - with varying degrees of success - to accomplish this lighting when I was photographing models. Not having a studio, or vast sums of money for professional equipment was a bit of a handicap, but I managed to put a few things together with PVC pipe and plastic tablecloths from Walmart! LOL
This lovely lady is Ryder by Amarath, available at Fantasy Attic. The dress is Pink Dolly from DAZ, her hair is Wild Orchid by Propschick & Goldtassel. The background is by Doarte - Drapery Series.
Again, I apologize for my commenting being so late. I'll try to do better - things seem to be calming down a bit, so hopefully I can stay caught up more or less. I think it's cost me a few friends - that used to comment, but don't anymore.
Anyway, thanks for dropping by, and I really do appreciate your comments and support! :-D

You still have a few friends so far I count 7 and there are a lot who can't put words together for one reason or another I know I am not doing very good right now! comment on your model: She's Lovely would make Great addition to the Team or Even an adversary Lighting can drive you crazy you try settings that look good then you render and it's turns out not how you imagined. Comment on Photographing :PVC pipe and Table Cloth? Seriously! did that impress the Models was the location some basement or attic in some Old Vacant House?
Excellent render with superb light, I have pretty much duplicated what you have done and in Studio 3 delight I usually add a 'Camera flash' unit with intensity quite low just to soften any unwanted shadows. Keep up the good work and don't worry about comments for me, I can see you are very busy!
Sexy lady! Why do I have this feeling she could pass for G4's sister...?
Interesting idea on using primitives to adjust lighting. Lighting in general (shadows in particular) has been a weak point with me, especially with the SSS thing with recent Wendacora and Tempestt pics. I would think the lighting on their skin was just right in the workspace, but tended to be darker in render. Argh.
Sorry for the late comment... but could have sworn I commented already... I have to say this came out great, cool work with lighting...
I too have the same problem with commenting, it seems there isn't enough time in the day see them all, much less comment. I do what I can.
Can't wait to see more, have a good one!
