Hi,

I'd like to take a photo with a similar result

what I can see:

One light camera left high (shadow of the collar left side of model)

One light (beauty dish?) front of model?

One light camera right? (shadow from shirt model right and from face on collar model right)

One light for the hair camera right behind model?

One light on the background

What I like is that on both sides of the model's face there is a bit of shadow, how is this achieved?

I like the position of the head where the right side of the model is in axis with the camera and hides the ear

What I have: 3 lights (Yongnuo flashes) , 2 white shoot thru umbrellas, 1 silver reflective umbrella, 1 softbox, 1 black/white background panel

Im going down the beauty dish above camera, clamshell path. I think there is a good chance that the camera right hair light is doing double duty for the hair and background. I really like the lighting a lot..
