I just tried this setup last night for a shoot. But I see that you are using an umbrella to bounce the light into the Muslin. This diagram shows the mistake that I did. I just used the bare bulb of my Elenchrom strobe and it did not disperse the light.

Thank you for sharing this - I will definitely use your technique.

Nice shot but your diagram should incorporate the key light as well. Nice clean light though.

A local clothing company asked me to photograph some apparel. He wanted high-key images.
