In this photograph, only one strobe (Light #1) is used, fitted with a 17”x54” strip softbox. Fill light is provided by a 48-inch collapsible gold reflector (Reflector #2). The lit model zone allows for moderate movement, as long as the model doesn’t step too close to either light or out of its path.
Advantages: portability and dramatic contrast.
Disadvantages: limited coverage and lack of versatility.
