Athena Nike Redux with Parisa Khobdeh

A few weeks ago I had my lovely friend and Paul Taylor dancer Parisa Khobdeh come by and play around with a piece of red satin fabric I had waiting for her. I've always loved the Winged Victory statue at the Louvre. Something about the strength and grace of the pose. I'd imagine that's why everyone like it. So Parisa was a good sport and was kind enough to jump WAY too many times for my camera. These are my three favorites.

It's times like this that I'm reminded of how lucky I am to live in NYC with friends who are world-class at what they do. It was lit by one Einstein monolight in speed mode at about half power into a medium Softlighter. I was going for a Caravaggio light, I think I mostly got there. Thanks to Francisco Graciano for helping out on this one.
