This image is a creative light setup we did as grand-finale for this Saturday's workshop). I will be posting a blog on the light setup with pull back shots and diagrams.

This shot was done, by placing 2 strip lights (softboxes)- facing one another - about a meter to the back of the model. We also used a kicker light on a boom to highlight a part of the hat's rim in the back.

Thanks guys, but it was a group effort. Something I saw on a website and then we tried to duplicate it. I think ours was better than the original. Also had a stunning model, which makes life easy...

This is a beautiful picture.  Love the highlighted areas around her shoulders and arms.  Puts emphasis on her slender physique.  Also love the creative lighting around her facial features.  Stunning!  Well done
