At this tiny resolution I can only tell that they used a lot of dodge and burn to emphasize her shape.

Ok, googled

but according to all the tutorials it is done with long exposure, so that is not really a studio techinque. After going through some of the light painting tutorials, I am not sure, it is what they did with the photos.

Don't see anything too exotic in this photo (apart from Miranda). Most of the effect of this type of photo is achieved by the use of a decent beauty dish on axis and some other light to fill from the sides at a steep ratio.

Re: demistification of Victoria Secret

You obviously googled the wrong tutorials... "Painting with light" is an amigious term. It describes both a retouching technique and a photography technique.

I like the second method described here:

Also you can paint in highlights on a transparent layer set to "normal" using a very soft white brush with low opacity or flow.

Re: demistification of Victoria Secret

I guess, you are right about the lights setup, but it is 100% not only the beauty dish with a honeycomb (or without) on it + fill light.

The skin texture is definately photoshoped. Same about the skin color. I would like to know how do the achieve this effect, pretty popular in VS photos. If you go through VS photos, they have a certain way of retouching the skin, that doesnt depends on the photo lighting (softbox/BD/etc).
