Models: Emma Alexa and... Emma Alexa!
Photographer: Richard Knightly.
The backround shot is of the rooftops of Fulham, shot from a top floor window one particularly amazing night last year. A bit of intensification of the colour but that's not far off how it looked.
As for the two Emmas - let's just say this is probably the most planning I/we have ever done for a single image
Getting the lights just so at the diferent angles was quite a trick. Hope you like it
Strobist info: Softbox camera left; gridded strobe camer right; beauty dish above on boom. Barn-door strobe on left to pick out highlights, with red gel to simulate the sunset. Lights raised & lowered to create the right lighting, given that the individual images were going to be rotated after being shot.
Processing in Capture NX2; montage in Paintshop Pro.
