Just got an AB400 and beginning to learn how to use them. My wife graciously agreed to be my model while I learn. I know I could use a hair light or reflector or something to create some separation between her head and the background. These were shot with a Canon 40D and one AB400. Any constructive c&c is greatly appreciated.

The shot looks OK, but you are right, you need some light on the camera left side of her. You could use a reflector up close, or a second light slightly behind her and to camera left to pickup the hair and left side of her face.

It looks to me like you have a softbox or umbrella to soften the light and that is a good thing. But the overall exposure looked a little on the dark side, but maybe you did that intentionally.

Anyway, I thought that you did a good job for a new strobe and all.

Thanks,
PTL,
Lee

You're right about the hair light -- but you could use a lighter background to help you out. Using a black background with a brunette is rough with only a single light. You might try putting the one light behind her with white bounce cards on either side of the camera.
