Annie,

From memory, it was three lights. A 4x6 softbox as the key a 36'' octa as fill and a 8" light for a hair (or hat) light.
Jim

Thanks for the info. I'm interested to see that you used the octa for fill - what made you decide to use the softboxes this way round? I'm just learning lighting and have been tending to use an octabox as main for the nice catchlights but would love to know your thought-process in making the decision.

Jim -- Same question from me too, I am purchasing an Octa that I want to use as a fill.

Though I've not used octas for fill (not having one makes it very difficult to use them), I've used brollies: my rationale of using soft light sources for fill is that the light will be even and, well, soft. Of course, it all depends on the requirements the image must have; sometimes it's best to use a hard light for fill, yea even a bare bulb, if we want a more contrasty image. The benefits of using a point source as fill are that its catchlight can be easily cloned out, whereas the second catchlight from a large fill light source would be trickier to do clone out.

I just took a gander at the image you were talking about. Whilst the definitive answer can only be given by its author, I'll venture a notion: when you have subjects sporting shiny subjects on which the light sources will be reflected, it'd be best to use large light sources all round. Had he used a bare bulb, an ugly round spot would have been present on the instruments, or the shades. It's not unlike lighting bottles: you use large, stripboxes for pleasant highlights.
