I've seen the technique you talk about (haven't tried it, though -- I don't have a softbox big enough
), and I think you can get some pretty cool stuff with it. I don't really see the need for more light on her front than what the reflector provided.
Do you have any of her looking at the camera? With that dramatic type of lighting I'd also like to see some more dramatic expressions, hand/arm positioning... I'm not sure what... or even some "subtle" drama, just with her eyes or something... Sorry if I'm not making much sense (it all makes sense in my head!
). I guess what I'm saying is I like the lighting itself, but her expression says something different than the lighting to me. Of course I could also be just way off in left field here, too, and if I come back and look at it tomorrow it could say something totally different to me. I'm weird like that.
Either way dude, keep it up!
