Additional Notes

My preference is subtle separation from the background as shown here rather than harsh lighting. The intent was to capture her beautiful skin tone and colour without losing detail in the white blouse and to keep the texture of the jacket intact.

I began with the umbrella to the subject's right in order to create some modeling. I then added the second umbrella as fill for the shadow; then added the small softbox behind her left shoulder to create some separation from the dark background and to provide hair light; finally I added a strobe on the model's right to increase separation on that side.

I, and the subject, are pleased with the results.
