    Ok so this is canon digital rebel with a fixed 50mm 1.8 @ f8 or 9 ss 125 and iso 200 with my studio alien bee to the left and a large reflector on the right. How can I get rid of the shadow and lighten his right side. The reflector is only 24 inches from him. I know the left side is a tad blown. But I am not concerned with that at the moment. Easy to fix that-- I posted in wrong catagory so I am fixing it. Sorry!!

    Great shot!!

    If you have PS, using the shadow/highlights tool and fiddling with the settings will reduce that shadow a good amount altho not remove it completely.

    A larger reflector would help brighten the fill side, or if you were using white reflector, a silver would give you more bounce, but I don't think I would worry about lightening the right side. It would be too flat if you added much more. As for the shadow on the paper, move the child further from the background, and use a background light.
