I have some shoots coming up and i want achieve a result similar to this:
<i did NOT take this SHOT, copyright to someone on modelmayhem>
http://mayhem-photos.s3.amazonaws.co​m/070504/14/463b818e90​b5e_m.jpgexternal link

Where the skin is nice and saturated, but yet not under exposed.
The shot is too small for me to see catchlights (by which to gauge what lighting was used) any suggestions?

i have some limitations of course due to my gear:
3 strobes total, (w/poverty wizard triggers)to share between 1 beauty dish, 2 reflector umbrellas and 1 shoot through umbrella.

or do i need to go buy 2 soft boxes?
or 1 reflector...

thoughts?

Looks like there might be a second light to camera left for either fill or for rim lighting. But looking at her eyes, the main light is camera right and that is where the exposure is set for. It also looks like the main may be a strip light.

You should be able to do that with your strobes, but if you don't have a soft box, you may have to improvise one with a scrim of some sort. You can possibly get the fill/rim with a reflector.

Those are my thoughts anyway.
