Nice job! Now grab a cheap reflector to raise the shadows on the opposite side of the flash.

Thanks, Cory. I have a small hand-held collapsible reflector that I got years ago for some outdoor portraits. But without an assistant to hold it, I need to find a way to mount it on a second light stand or tripod. I think they make clips for that.

A friend who is a professional photographer suggested I look into v-flats . I had never heard of them before, but among other uses they offer a pretty simple way to add in some fill light. But they are also pretty big, and I don't have a studio to put everything in.

Shooting with OCF is super fun!

Yep - I can already tell I'm going to enjoy it. It's a completely different type of photography than what I've done for years. It's fun to learn something new.
