I like #4
and ya shadows...

Try pulling that chair away form the wall and some of the shadows may drop off and maybe switch to one light closer to the centre use your other light on the wall to reduce shadows again.

I'd love to be able to do that......but.....the room is barely 10x12. Not shot in a real studio, but if ya have about 50 or 60 thousand you can give away so I can build one, I'll be able to move the chair out some. Sorry!

Not required. Use a larger lightsource (bigger softbox). They wrap around more and you'll get less harsh shadows.

"Holy Shadows Batman." That was funny, I am still laughing. She is a pretty girl no mistake about it.

I can try that I have a 48 inch light box, but shadows are still going to be a killer in this room. I did shoot for being in the spotlight effect in some of my photo's.
In some I did what I did in this photo. Ps'ed the shadow out completely. but I did that to get the hairs that were standing up. She didn't see them, I didn't till I printed the first one. Patching them out just made the picture worse, stamping them out bloted too much an left paterns on the wall, this seemed to work better but it was a lot of work.

Or you could use a ringflash.

You will be surprised what a large light source up close will do. I shot some tests last night with the model sitting on a bench right next to the wall. Light was from a single 5ft umbrella to her left. You can barely see a shadow on the wall.

Also shadows are not completely evil but they have to be controlled. I think the bigger issue here is not that you have a shadow but that you have multiple going different directions. You would be better served using one light. only and letting the wall reflect and provide fill. Or better yet put a black sheet on that wall and have one light with depth and intentional shadows on the far side.

I shot this last night. 1 light with a 30 degree grid camera left and about 3 feet away from her. A reflector just out of frame right. I have a shadow a hard shadow but only one and it makes sense based on where the light is coming from. I'm not claiming it is without flaws but just an example that you can do stuff in a small space. The area I am working in is only 12 feet wide. I do have a bit more length but could have done this shot in a 10x12 if necessary

I must be in the wrong or at least in the very small and insignificant minority. The only time that shadows bother me is when they are on the face. Especially when there are two on the face caused by my lights. Yes I also use shadows on the face if I put them there. I know I just contradicted myself, but I have done lighting like your example. And in some of Deana pictures.
One light in a small space is a lot easier to control.
I have used lights in close but the results were overexposure. I guess I could play around with the iso to combat that.
Evenly lighting the room is pretty easy too, but I like to drop the levels down to get a mood. Thi s is what I have to work on.
