How to light this:

what's the best set up to create this light on the face? I like how no awkward nose shadow which seems to happen when I light like this.

Re: How to light this:

Experiment until you get what you want.

I read a article last year about a real high end photographer who worked with some real expensive talent.

He bought a couple of mannequins to get his lighting setup before the talent got there. That way he could get the talent out without being on the clock too long.

I was going to do that but I'm single and I just don't want my neighbors to see me bringing mannequins home.

Al,
I heard blow up dolls serve well and are easy to move from one location to another. ;-)

Re: How to light this:

I've used low cost dummy heads for lighting training and setting up for a few years now: POLYSTYRENE MALE DISPLAY HEAD MANNEQUIN | eBay

They are great for checking shadows and not boring the assistant or sound guy, they also sit still for many hours! ;0)

I'm glad I wasn't the only one to launch my beverage through my nose on 'Don's Comment'.
