As promised, a shot with a lighting explanation.

My thanks go to Con Carson for helping me get my head round this set up and breaking my personal best on lights used in a single shot - 6. This was shot in Contrast Studio in Glasgow using 6 Bowens units set up as per the diagram that follows...

Main light is overhead boom with medium softbox - F11
Fill is with large octabox at rear - F4
Background lights - F8
Kickers - F5.6Gobo panels to prevent lens flare
Shot at IS0100 at F11, 1/125sec, post processing only to change contrast and add slight blue tinge to the shadows.
