@Access are you asking how you get the right exposure or are you asking for creative ideas?
What are portable modeling lights? Are you talking about speedlights?
More creative ideas, beyond the standard/typical of a silhouette or lighting the face(s) trying to mimic a 3-point lighting setup with the sun as the backlight.
I just ended up doing the usual, strobes because there was far too much wind to even attempt using the modeling light and umbrella, the wind would flip the umbrella into reverse in an instant.
The portable modeling lights are just that, similar to studio lights (continuous, not strobe) except they're portable, I use them all the time for night shots.
