I know it seems that I prefer a one light setup but really…I do. I love how you can isolate your subject with just one light. In this photo, I used a very tight grid so that the light would only give you a hint of Shannon’s outline. Photography is all about controlling light and with a one light setup you can tell the light to show or hide what you want. In a very bright area, you have to make the model hide or show what you want by using pose.
