    A home studio shoot because it was very difficult to book Feisty for a shoot, and this wasn't a weather appropriate costume.
    Played with a new boom arm and a generic 55cm beauty dish from Fotogenic. Will be using it more now that I've given it a thorough test. The dish however doesn't attach flush to the strobe head which kind of worries me as it is prone to dipping from the sheer weight. Will need to talk to the supplier about getting a more reliable bayonet or modifying the existing attachment.
    The smoke machine was a fun addition to my kit too.

    I will probably replace those flashes in the future with studio lights.

    Model/Costume/Makeup: Feisty Cuffs K0

    Nice setup George.. I love the second frame the most. I think that is definitely the stand out.

    #3 & #4 I find the shadow on the bottom half of her face really changes the focus on the image. Same with the hot spot.

    Home setup is looking good, look forward to seeing more :thumbup:

    Yea it was the first time with the overhead dish, and were all hard lights. Hotspots and harsh shadows everywhere. Lots of improvement or refinements to do.

    Need a bigger room and taller ceiling too. So i'll adjust a few things for the next shoot.

    Definitely some of the best photos I've seen you post. You've perked my curiosity as I have no idea who Zatanna actually is.
