Using ambient light

Hi everyone,

I was just watching a video of Annie Lebowitz making a portrait of Keith Richards.

https://youtu.be/_RGunD1tngg

It looks like she's using a Photek softlighter. I can't find any here in Spain but I'll probably pick one up online and pay extra shipping. What size would be good to get? I'd use it with an AD200.

Also, could anyone explain how Annie made this look?

Does she just use a Soft lighter and make it just a bit higher then Ambient?

I've always thought I should take all of the ambient out of my shots but I really like this natural look.

Thanks so much
