So I finally got a Sekonic 358 light meter and can finally accurately measure my lighting ratios. I can now get my white background white w/o over-exposing the subject and get my dark background black while still lighting my subject. Would you guys like to share some of your lighting secrets? Right now, I'm just using a 2 light setup (alien bees 800) and am considering a 3rd. I know there is a great deal of variability depending on what mood you're going for, but what are some of the basics that you have as a starting point in terms of ratios? I also have a speed light that I can throw into the mix, but I would think it easier to stick w/ the 2 ABs and go from there. For example, key light at 7 o'clock and fill light at 4-5 o'clock at 2 stops below key light.
