    Here's the setup for this headshot I took of Sophia.

    Note the SB-600 mounted on the back of her chair with a Manfrotto Justin spring clamp to illuminate the white backdrop.

    The final photo was taken with Sophia's face much closer to the camera and between the two umbrellas.

    I took the idea for the arrangement of lights from Joe McNally's book "The Moment It Clicks."

      I love setup shots... I learn so much from them and this is certainly a good one. Thanks for sharing.

      Hey Joe I didn't see you at B&H for McNally's talk and book signing two Sundays ago. Was U there?

      It was great to hear McNally talk and go through some of the stories and pictures from the new book.

      Thanks for the set-up shot. Joan and I are just going through this process of learning multiple strobe set-ups as well.

      McNally's book is great -- it's basically a series of wonderful anecdotes each with an accompanying photo. Each one teaches a small lesson and describes something about how he got the shot.
