Nice series Lorri, with a nod to HORST maybe? Lighting is fine; perhaps try using scrims to cut light in strategic areas. Less is more ECT. One little nag, models left foot looks awkward to me. A trick that Cecil Beaton did was butterfly lighting, which is high and centre hot light. Another was to place light off to one side, have model face away from light and use white card to fill the face area. This is a very old style from 1911 era, still looks great though. Again well done!
