Gorgeous light, and lovely mood.

Thanks. This was one of my first more conceptual works. It's a Penitent Maria inspired by a painting of Caravaggio. Done with one light. I find it relaxing to work with just one light. You have to solve problems otherwise instead of just adding an extra light. It keeps the images much more pure

You should check out Michael Thompson's portrait of Julianne Moore recreating La Grande Adalisque. It's really beautiful, and reminds me of your lighting style.

That's a beautiful photo. A bit harsher than mine, but the concept and the light are quite similar
