Joanie, I never noticed your unshaven arm pits before.
The background obviously has it's own light source. This isn't getting illuminated by spill from the Key or Fill.
It's an interesting photo. Pay attention way the shadows are falling on her face and clothing. It's very soft and appears to be coming from below rather than at camera level or from above. There's no "Rembrandt Triangle" camera left either. I've got lights and that shot was a delicate balance of key and fill light.
Raquel. Looks good to this day too.
Jill St. John,
This could have easily been lit with just a single light source. Also, possible to have been two.
It looks to me like a diffused key light on camera right that has been pulled back a few feet (hard shadow of her shirt on her chest), and set at more of an angle to the subject than your standard portrait lighting (strong division line at her nose, and her right eye in shadow from the key light). The fill light on the right side of her face could have been some bounce fill from the background itself, given the angle, or more likely, a small reflector (hard light source) at a lower than level angle, evidenced by the catch light in her right eye. It could also have been a small light source acting as a fill light at what appears to be about 3 stops less power than the key light.
I agree... Nice shot.
Who can forget
Mary Tyler Moore
What took so long?
Oh, H*ll yes!
Liz Taylor looked good in her day, but I remember her for being that crazy weirdo that hung out with Micheal Jackson.
Give her Vulcan ears and put her in the next Star Trek movie.
There's so many but the holy trinity was Audrey, Ingrid and Grace, with honourable mentions -Ava Gardner and Vivien Leigh.
Something about the way old movies were filmed (Technicolor?) that really brought out the dream like quality of beauty. Grace Kelly in Rear Window is what I immediately think of.
I knew I was forgetting one!
