What do you have to do?
Post your best model shot in this topic which includes a lightsource.
Meaning the sun, a strobe, a lightbulb or whatever.
The lightsource has to be IN the shot.

Please link to your image and don't upload the images.


Competition ends on June 20th

Sample :

So it has to include some form of a lightsource, in this case the backlight (the headlights were post processed)

Cool shot, CarloH and vandenburg but it doesn't include the lightsource.
I changed the start topic to make it a bit more clear, sorry for the confusion.

My try for the competetion

a sci fi inspired shoot taken a few years ago now in an underground disused former reservoir. The makeup was done by a fantastic talented MUA called Christine Torres and the model was Leeanne Morales.


people often ask me if the reflection is real or photoshopped. The reflection is real. Leeane is crouched over a drainage channel which was filled with water and earlier during another shot we noticed if she stood over it and the light was set right we got great reflections. To get this one I put the head of the Xpro B tripod upside down and hung it with camera in the drainage channel and triggered remotely.

My "shot towards the light source" with Mandy

This shot was a experiment I wanted to do a long time.
I made the shot with the strobe (studio stobe) direct into the lens.

The result was exactly what I wanted it to be.

Here you go Frank. Sort of a test of concept shot that worked out better than I thought it would.

Lit with a Canon 430EXII in a globe nicked from a table lamp and triggered with a Pocketwizard. Bit of post-processing for skin and a bit of swirly stuff "in" the globe.
