I enjoy seeing your "studio lessons." You do beautiful work. However, I think they would be more informative if you included a bit of information about the setup you used to get the photo. Not everyone can look at the image and discern what techniques you employed to produce it. I know that I've personally scratched my head on occasion and wondered, how did he do that?

P.S. I think that including, at the least, the camera settings used to produce a photo would be a good practice for all of us to get into when posting photos. I realize that, depending on the file type used, much info can be obtained by checking a photo's Exif data. but I still think it's a good idea to post the info with the photo.

information about the setup you used
D3X + 85 PC ( not to flatten the subject too much ) and
4x ProPhoto heads and modifiers.

camera settings
1/200s, ƒ8, Auto WB, 100 ISO with colour checker

the file type
RAW.

The aim was for them to learn to work blacks on black and
control specular highlights without polariser.
