I have been asked to take some images for an acquaintance. Just as a friendly favour, nothing more.
It will be three adults in a group together, standing, and they want full-figure shots as well as portraits. To be taken with a white backdrop.
The set up I have available is three D-Lite 400's - two with 65x90cm softboxes and one with 65x65 softbox.
Will this work if I use the two larger ones in the "conventional" to-the-side-at-45 degrees position to illuminate their lower bodies and have the smaller one raised above camera to illuminate the heads and shoulders?
I am a novice at studio work so would appreciate any tips and advice.

You won't need the 3 - just use the two as you describe at 45 degrees and it should be ok. Just set the of the softboxes to chest height and you'll get the coverage for full length.
Thanks for the reply, Andy. I thought perhaps the 90cm wouldn't give enough coverage height-wise.
Fortunately I have time to try it out before the event.
Sure, that will light your subjects OK, but you still need to light the background seperately if you want a proper white.
