This is the introduction to a much more colorful-- and gory-- series. I wanted to give a sense of distance and separation, and the lighting and filter setup was a big part of that.

This lighting setup was pretty unusual, and included the make-shift filter you see here, and some other things behind the scenes. (Yes, that is a shower curtain.)

The model is actually standing in a studio, not in a shower as you might expect. There is a translucent scrim behind her, with a light behind her but high. Two soft boxes are placed on either side of the model, with reflectors/blockers to keep the light from hitting the front of the shower curtain.
