    Hi there
    Last week I bought studio lights kit. It is Interfit EX150 with umbrella and 60cm softbox.
    Last Saturday I had first shoot using them (my wife was posing so no stress :) )
    I'm quite happy about results.
    I used softbox on camera right as main light and an umbrella on camera left as fill light.
    What you think?

    The ratio is a bit harsh IMO (the fill light needs to be brighter/closer).

    Now you need a 3rd light to shine on her hair, from above or behind, to give it separation from the background.

    Looks like you are off to a good start.

    Thanks for comment.
    I need some more practice but I'll get there. I have my sb600 and stand so I'll try to do some hair/back light.
    Thanks again.
