This image was taken last year when I still had my 5D. I wanted to create a classic look with the lighting. This one was taken with just the modeling lights of 2 strobes, one on each side of her.. But the interesting thing about this image is the post-processing. This one was first converted to grayscale and then put through a tritone process. I found the tritone processing tips from TravelPhotographers which has great tips. This particular tritone processing gives a much better impact than normal bw processing I think. I also added a hint of a glow to the overall image to bring out that classic look even more.
This image was taken during a lighting workshop held by Ted Adnan which I recommend to everyone who wants to learn about lighting using flash as well as studio lights. I sure learnt a lot when I attended.
