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.
