Great work. Could you describe the lighting technique?

Thanks for the kind words Mark :)
I had to go back and look at some of the other photos from this series to see what I did for the lighting. I used a single 22" Beauty Dish with a grid on one of my Alien Bees B800 strobe lights to get this look. The light was maybe 4 feet from the model and just slightly camera left, almost straight on and about 45 degrees or so above her. Shot against fashion gray seamless paper, the light was close enough that the falloff of light turned the background black.
