Looks like you are off to a great start.
Thanks. Appreciate the encouragement.
I had doubts about buying a single light -- most use two. But so far I haven't found a need photographing individual subjects and working in very limited space at home.
Biggest issue I had was controlling spill, getting deep shadows when I want them. The Buff grids do that nicely and very conveniently. (The linked nudes in my OP were done in a friend's studio, not my home.)
The Softlighter (umbrella with diffuser) is something of a dissapointment in my small white room. Absolutely soft, but almost like bouncing off a ceiling -- no shadow control.
