At camera club yesterday we set up a load of lights and had a portrait session. Here is the first I processed.
I used one light mostly on the backdrop, and the other camera left as the main. A reflective sheet camera left for fill...How does it look?

Nice and sharp and good catchlight, but the actual key camera right is a bit hot on her for a key... and way too hot if it wasn't supposed to be the key. :) Is the temp the same? The camera left light looks a little cooler than the "key".

I'm new to lighting but I like the detail in the shot. Such a serious face for a little girl, wish she was smiling or looking into the camera. Other than that I like it.

This was the idea:

but in reality the BG light ended up too close to the photographer, and then spilled a little on Ruby.

As for smiling, she's 6, it was 3 hours past bedtime, and she'd been posing for over an hour for other club mermbers, bless her. A wonder she was actually awake! :)

It appears your background light spilled and became the key, and the one you labeled main became the fill. I could be wrong though i'm a nooB student in the studio.

I think you're right. :)
Can't be more of a noob at lighting than me. :)
