I'm super happy with the shot, but I'm really pretty picky…so, a lot of times I want to see what each light is…doing, and the best way to do that is simply turn off…all of the other lights, keep one light on at a time.…Take three shots.…And take a look at them.…So Rich, if you'd be so kind as to turn…off the background light and turn off the beauty light. Good.…Okay, Valerie, ready?…So it's very easy for me to see what that one light is doing by itself.…It's a really nice key light.…
Let's go around and turn that off and turn…on the beauty light, and see what that light's doing.…>> Alright,…go for it. >> So, this is just the beauty dish.…And I can see exactly what that light is doing, what part of…her face it's lighting up, what part of the dress is being lit up.…And finally, I'm going to look at the background…lights, and neither of the front lights will pop.…Rich if you could go ahead and turn off the front two…lights, and just give me my background light, we'll take our final shot.…Thank you Rich, and I want to point out Rich has been moving the pocket…
