    Hi to all
    I'd like to know if anyone can help me with a lighting question:
    Can anyone tell me how to get an efect in studio with a 2 light set?
    I want to be able to light only half of the face of the model and let the other almost in complete darkness.
    The result I expect is something like the one in the photo.
    Thanks!!!

    You just need to set up the light to one side at 90 degrees to your subject. It looks from the photo like there is also a light behind the subject, illuminating the background.

    You may also need a black side reflector if you are getteing too much bounce from the dark side.
