Trying to get some good quality shots of this baby, but my lighting set up is clearly all wrong. There are shadows everywhere and it just looks so snapshot-y. I'm looking for a more wrapped, soft light without all the extra shadows.
If anyone can tell from looking at it what needs to be changed, I'd love to hear it. Lighting diagram is attached as well, but is was:
- 580EXII camera left, angled down @ 45 degrees, with shoot-through umbrella, and
- Bare speedlight camera right (close to floor) aimed at background (or so I thought anyway).
My first thought was move the umbrella to right next to me, and maybe move her further from the background. But I would love to hear anyone else's opinions if you've seen a similar issue and know how to fix it. TIA!
