Nifty Fifty

Challenge #1 in the Old School series. Hosted by streetphoto.
Challenge has finished
Photos taken with a 50mm lens in full frame equivalent. For example, a 50mm lens on full frame, 35mm lens on APS-C, 25mm on micro 43, etc are all fine. Although I would prefer that you use a prime lens, zooms set to a 50mm equivalent focal length are ok as well. Many outstanding photographers have shot with a 50mm lens. The best ones use the 50mm as either a short telephoto, or a long wide angle.

1st place
This is a studio shot on their training premises. We set the black backdrop as high as we could and turned off every light in the place. Then we lit the lovely lady with low powered flashes on each side and one orange tinted one from below. The blacks were turned down to the point where the harness from the ceiling and the backdrop was pure black but that you could still see the cables
