Lighting technique query.

Hello everyone,

I would like some opinions on how the photograph below was lit, I have a project in which I must use ambient light and flash, to get some inspiration I have been looking at Terry Richardson's work, obviously because of his use of flash.

Moss by Richardson

The above photo of Kate Moss is one that came to my mind in having both ambient light and flash. I can see that there is a flash to light up Moss, I'm not sure if it's centred or slightly to the right.

I want an idea of what modifier he used to light this shot, or if there was even a modifier used. I know of his technique of using the gadget which holds a speed light close to the lens, could this have been used to light up the whole of Moss? And how can I tackle taking a similar photo with a sun burst seen through the legs of the model?

Richardson's lighting technique

Thank you for your time !

Rachel
