So, I turn back on all the lights, or actually Rich did it for me.…I took one more shot and I like it but now that I know…what that back light's doing, I want to kind of change it up a little bit.…Get a different feel.…Rich, would you do me a favor?…Let's go ahead and move the diffuser out of the way and…instead of lighting the actual background Let's move that background light and…have it become a hair light, and aim it at the back…of Valarie's head, and it's going to give us a, a different look.…And normally I would probably isolate this again…to tweak it, but let's just see if luck…is with us, and once the light is set,…we're going to go ahead and grab a quick shot.…
>> Higher or lower?…>> I think you can bring it up a little bit higher.…And speaking of higher or lower another thing to…keep in mind when using strobes or using lights…is that usually you place the light above the…person because that's how we see people in natural sunlight.…So in general light should be a little bit above their eye line…or a lot above their eye line and you'll get nice pretty shadows.…
