Bought my first umbrella and light stand today. My subject was this paper mache head that one of the kids made years ago, it has a lot of patience and doesn't ask any questions.
The umbrella with a speed light was photo right, above the head, aiming down at 45 degrees and just out of the frame. For a bit of fill light there was a piece of white styrofoam on the left very close to the head
and again just out of the frame. Camera flash was set to commander for the trigger and the speed light was set to manual, I started at 1/4 power, iso 100, shutter 1/200th, and aperture f 7.1 and went from there.
