I photographed Eliza on a black back drop with two soft boxes. I positioned the light on the left, directly beside of the model, and the light on the right is positioned at a 45 degree angle from the model.
I like this set up because of the lighting is not flat, and I feel that it creates a more elegant light and mood. Though I like the lighting setup, I think that there could be some improvements. I should have turned down the power on the right soft box to prevent from blowing out the skin tones (i did pull most of this out in post production). I also could use a little bit more power from the light on the left.
