Roger’s naughty polygamist, as I like to call her, is a striking image that takes you a bit by surprise as you look from top to bottom. It was created with 5 lights
Lighting: The key light is a white beauty dish at f8 boomed high above camera and angled downward. A large octabank at f4 (-2 stops) positioned behind Roger serves as fill. Two small strip lights, both at f16 (+2 stops), are behind the model to camera left and right. They’re slightly above head height and create the hard highlights on the sides of her face and shoulders. A small softbox at f11 1/2 (+1.5 stops) sits low and behind the model, aimed at the back wall to create the glow.
Comments: It was tough for Roger to find actual polygamists who were willing to pose in such a way for the camera. He ended up settling on this model who, though not one of a posse of wives, did date a classmate and his father, simultaneously, senior year in high school.
