    I was testing out some different lighting positions. I don't what caught my attention in the second one, haha. I was using a strobe and softbox to camera left and a cheap slave behind me & couch pointing down towards me. second I had same position of softbox, but this time i move the slave flash on the floor behind the couch and a snooted ac slave pointe dt my face. I think its a tad overexposed on my face, this was my error in photoshop.

    You have a weird nose shadow in the second shot.

    i think that was from the snoot being too close too me. I should of set it back further and maybe shot with a different f-stop. I had the strobe and softbox at 1/2 power.

    I would either move the chair to the center of the blindes or to a blank wall. They are very distracting being in only part of the picture.
