Question "50 Most stylish NewYorkers" look

Hello again. Thank for your advises to change color of skin in my previous post.
Some of them were very useful. But I've got new brainbreaker ))

Look at these photos please
http://www.stylecaster.com/fashion/e...yorkers#116024

It seems awesome softly, clever but save all textures and contrast.
Skin is perfectly pastel pink in shadows and soft light grey in highlights.

What do you think about retouching like that?
And what do you think about lighting setup for shooting especially for that retouch method.

Thanks!

Looks to me like it's shot using a large overhead scrim or diffusion panel, large as in it extends from just behind the model to 2 meters in front. There could be two heads above the panel lighting it, the one closer to the model having a modifier with more contrast, the other softer and lighting the panel more evenly.

Thank Mac, I guess you are right! But would you show it on lighting diagram, please.
I can't understand your mind completely.

And what's about PP? Any idea?

Kind of hard to show on a diagram from above as there's a lot of variable in how you set this up both horizontally & vertically. Here's a diagram showing from above -

Hard to say if its only one light as I don't know what sort of studio/space they're shooting in, I suspect it's a large/high studio though considering the shoot. The reason I think its two lights is that you have a slightly stronger contrast on the models head and its pretty high above/close to the model yet there is still a good amount of fill/light for the rest of the model down to the feet. So you have one main light closest to the model that sits above the diffusion panel, possibly a magnum reflector or beauty dish, then a larger softbox with no front diffusion on it that lights the diffusion panel further in front of the model.

For a hard example of this check out image 5/50, the reflection in the models hair says that there is a light source that extends from above/behind the model to out and almost down to the camera axis. If you look even harder you can see there is a tight shadow under the nose, yet a soft shadow on the legs. General lighting wisdom would say it is usually the other way around when just using a single smaller modifier, yet when you add a diffusion panel to the mix you can reverse this.
