The first set of photos were taken against a white background shot with two speedlights set up by another photographer Paul Watkinson. A Canon 580EX in a beauty dish to the right and a Canon 430EX in a softbox to the left, triggered with Phottix Odin. I desaturated the images and added a slight vignetting.

The second set up was shot on a black and white check flooring. I believe these images are much stronger and much closer to the concept of "Mono". On the second image, I did have to change the colour of the blue wall and removed two ugly pictures that were on the wall. Lighting was very simple, only using my Strobeam DL4 with a shoot through umbrella.
