That you for posting that. I'm still trying to get my head around what happening with the umbrella though. Is it shooting through the muslin or is it positioned above and behind (shooting over the top of the muslin)? Thank you!

Additional Notes

I've received several e-mails regarding my High-Key technique. So here it is:
The backdrop is a 10' x 10' white muslin, but you can buy a white cotton sheet.
The umbrella is silver and is actually about 6 feet away from the backdrop and about three feet higher than the highest point on the model and angled slightly downward. The softbox behind the camera is about 1 stop lower than the light coming through the backdrop. That's it!!! nothing to it. Now go out and create your own high-key image.

The strobes are inexpensive RPS Studio 160WS monolights
