We got this arrangement from Bill Holshevnikoff, author of the Arri Lighting Handbook. Since we don’t have Arri lights, we placed a Nanlite Forza 300 fitted with an FL-20G fresnel lens perpendicular to the camera and directed it toward a reflector, which then becomes our key light, creating a soft light with gentle wraparound and nice catchlights in the eyes. A large source close to the subject is what creates wonderful specular highlights in skin.
