What's your light set up? And what background are you using? You may be able to just change your light arrangement and use what you have.

You've got a great start! How many tries did it take? When I did mine own "selfie" about a month ago, it only took like 40 shots. ;)


Thanks. I have a 47" Octabox as key, camera nearly touching my camera on the right. I have an umbrella to my back left for hair, and a bare speedlight right behind me for background splash. I am also holding a reflector at my waist for fill.

I think I got this picture in 10-15 shots. I was triggering my 6D from my smartphone that I was holding. Makes focusing easy too.

You could use your octa as key, umbrella as fill (which can end up lighting your big) and your bare as hair light.

I usually do the key at about 30 degrees and the fill nearly straight behind the camera. I do use a strip box for hair/rim but bare should work, too.

Not trying to tell you what to do. Just offering another route. :)

When I put a light directly behind camera I get an extra catchlight. Is there a way to avoid this?

It was with a sigma 30mm on a crop sensor. Any advice for next time? My other option would have been a 100mm, however - that would not have worked for the space I had to use. I probably should have had her sit down on a stool and shoot from a higher point. I only had two flashes.. one to blow out the off-white (yellowish) wall, and the other as the prime light, up and right of the model with a reflector on her left.

Portrait certainly isn't my thing.. just a usable head shot for a friend (linkedin, etc).
