Lighting Setup - hair model photo shoot

One of the first test shots from a session with a Swedish model. The client wanted to show their hair styling products and tools, so I set up for a very white and soft light with light shadows.

Lighting info

Main light from a Profoto ComPact 600R fitted with a Softlight Reflector camera left angled down towards the model's face. Below flash and in front of camera is a Photoflex LitePanel (white) to create some fill. On both sides of the model I placed large paper walls to reflect some light. Behind model there are 2 Profoto ComPacts in Striplight softboxes (one with grid, one without) for lighting the background and act as both rimlight and hairlight.
