Hi Brian. First and foremost ... of course I don't mind if you pull and PP my images. When you do this I learn, and know what to do next -- so please feel free, and thank you for helping me understand better.
As you were posting, I was assembling more lights and added a background. I have a boom, so I'm leaning toward placing the light directly above (as you have suggested) facing down. The setup was as follows:
Key at 45/45 (left side of Barbara)
Fill provided by 45" reflector (right side of Barbara)
Hair at 45/45 (slightly higher, behind Barbara facing her cap -- also left side)
Both Key and hair/rim lights had honeycomb grids as to prevent spill
580EX2 on my dining room chair/below the table, behind Barbara facing the backdrop @ 1/128 power setting
ISO100 -- 1/200 sec. f/8
I should also point out I placed the hair/rim light on her left side because I wanted to bounce more of it from the reflector on her right to obtain more fill.
I still need much work Brian, but what's important is you have taken the time to teach me step-by-step what to do and sometimes that's what some of us need. I can't thank you enough for this because I'm now keeping my AB-800s and have an interest to learn more about studio lighting.
I welcome your feedback, and expert advice. Thanks again Brian, and now for your viewing critique (try not to laugh too hard) .. here's Barbara. :-)
