I shot this to try out a new way of lightning - you never learn stuff until you try it out ;-)

Large softbox to camera left and honeycomb to lower camera right.

Does the honeycomb create a too harsh lightning to the model?

Regards,
Jan

In my opinion the shadows are not to harsh, there just in the wrong place. Try raising the grid light a little and see how you like it.

As was pointed out already, its not that its harsh, its just in the wrong place. Try coming from above her and point it directly at her face, or whatever you want to highlight. I would try having the softbox, camera left, a stop below the honeycombed light, camera right and high, and have the honeycombed light pointing at her face from above her pointing down.

As the others have said, it's in the wrong place. Where are you trying to go to? If you want more specular light, try removing the front panel of your SB. If you just want stronger light, don't use a fill.

Paul

This was shot with just a large SB:
