I just got my Flashpoint monolight and I am practicing with it. I am going to try and do a little studio shoot.
I know I don't have to have any other lights just the one light and maybe some type of reflector. However, I was reading in some of the lighting literature with the monolight that said you could put the hair light high and above the model. Can I get by with any type of Home Depot type clamp light just to give it a little highlight or would it not make it pop enough?
Same with the backlight. If I am shooting 6-8 feet from the backdrop or wall can I use some type of continuious light to illuminate the backdrop or even a flash on reduced power?
I know I don't have to have these at this point but wondered if they would enhance the shot or if the make do lighting would be more of a hinderance to deal with.
