This was taken in my lounge with a king size white bed sheet behind Sara, and another on the floor. The lighting was from two Canon Speedlites. The problem I have found with using two speedlites is that there always seems to be some telltale shadows on the subject. I haven't yet managed to get the light to wrap around the subject. I shot this image in raw and then converted to jpeg in Lightroom. I did photoshop the background to remove creases in the sheet.
Quite pleased with the shot overrall but would appreciate comments,
Thanks

How did you set up the lights? Were both on the subject or one lighting the backgroudn, and did you use any softboxes or diffusers?

Interested, cos this is the same as my setup, and I think you've made a pretty good job here.

The white sheet was hung over a large double patio door, which created the background light. The 2 speedlites were each at 45 degrees to the subject, however, I don't think I had them positioned high enough as there is a cross shadow on her. I think I should have placed them slightly higher than her eye level.
There was a white sheet on the floor too, which created some upward reflection of light.

Cunning idea! Now I need to find someone with a patio door, though I guess a windown will work just as well for a head shot.
