Thank you so much Brownie and Stef. I get it now!
Your mother is absolutely gorgeous! In your shoes, I’d use the heck out of her to learn lighting and posing.
Here is an article I found after Stef (in a different thread) talked about split/broad/short lighting. I plan on doing the exercise as soon as I can set up again.
I had been using some of the patterns without even knowing it, and Im sure I’ll do even better when it’s done purposely and more correctly lol OY
