Model Valicia, aka Lisi, gathered her wardrobe and props to come up with a unique outfit, Texas style catalog shoot.
Her dress is made by the Texas +Magnolia Pearl, an eclectic clothing artist. (http://www.magnoliapearl.com/) Lisi also appears in a Magnolia Peal commercial titled "Serenade of the Winged Victrola" See - http://youtu.be/Rgr3rklPuM4
The above image was taken with 7 strobes - 2 large diffused umbrellas, front, left/right; 2 strip boxes left/right slightly behind and shooting toward model's back and side; 2 bare bulb strobes left/right pointing back to seamless paper background and flagged with black cine foil; 1 small overhead softbox on boom for hair light. The background and overhead lights were set at about a 7/10th stop brighter than the main two front lights. The strip boxes were set about 1 stop of light less than the front lights.
In taking this image, things other than the background (strobe and lighting equipment) appeared in the image so, Lisi was extracted and placed onto a white background.
Basic tweaking was done and a separate layer was created to add a subtle shadow along the bottom edge of the pillow, dress and boots. A Gaussian blur was applied to shadow. Because the image was evenly lighted originally, the shadow was made very faint.
Processing was done in Lightroom and Photoshop.
