Close but not quite (with sample images)
Had my Canon D30 (yes, D30, not the 30D) and got my first time to play with some White Lightning strobes. 1200 watts through a softbox above and in front of her and a 600 wide open to the left behind her.
I tried to use the rear light to separate the model from the background and to offset the light falloff from the main, but I think I overdid it with the rear light.
What are some other options I might have tried?
Is there a general rule for how close a reflector needs to be to serve as a fill light? I had one but couldn't seem to get it close enough to make much of a difference.
Thanks for your input.
p.s. Yes, I know a D30 is ancient compared to what most folks here shoot with nowadays, but that's not why my lighting was bad!
