Hi Brian,

Thank you for the comments.

The space between the main and fill light was limited due to the walls of the tight living room. Therefore I kept the space between the lights and the subject small as well and tried to soften the light by keeping the power down as much as possible.

As difusors I used a white umbrella (bounced) and as fill I used a softbox.

So if I had the possibility to have the lights more apart, I surely would have done that. In this case there was no option. But a realy good observation.

The settings were approx. f5.6 to f8 and the lights: main light 1/16th to 1/4th and fill light 1/32th (depending on positions of kids etc.)

About the harshness... I do not have a callibrated monitor but have had feedback previously and this indicated that I was too soft. I did therefore some postprocessing and some sharpening. I do like sharp pictures but soft skin so the skin is softened.

Do you have something similar to share to see differences?
