In follow up to my post last Saturday where I was struggling to get the background blown out, I've managed to fix that problem by moving to a larger space in the basement. Yay me! But now, the model is not getting sufficient light and I'm looking for suggestions. Any guidance is appreciated. 1.

Resolved the backdrop issue by moving to a larger space in the basement and bouncing light off umbrellas instead of shooting the speedlights directly at the backdrop: [/URL] Studio Shot-1 by jwbryson1, on Flickr[/IMG] 3. Blew out the backdrops with 2 bounced YN 560s on full power in 42" umbrellas: [/URL] Taylor White Background 2-1 by jwbryson1, on Flickr[/IMG] 4. Another blown out backdrop: [/URL] Taylor White Background-1 by jwbryson1, on Flickr[/IMG] I think the problem with lighting the model is that the umbrella is just too high perhaps. If I lower it by about 1 to 2 feet, I think I can better get light on her face. I'm open to suggestions. Thanks for looking.
