hey so i really dont do a lot of portraits but i decided to try it out since i got a new sc-28 sync cable. here is my setup. -nikon d40 -sc28 sync cable -sb600 speedlight -3 diffused work lamps -white bedsheet for the background the speedlight was snooted (about an 8 inch snoot made out of construction paper) and the camera was set to 1/500 at f/11 (i think). i used a remote to trigger the shutter and i post processed from there. there were two work lamps on the right and one on the left in an attempt to cast a shadow since the only background i had was a white bedsheet anyways lmk what you think!
