I use a browser that supports color spaces, but you should save for web using sRGB and DO NOT embed the color profile. The purpose is to produce images for browsers that don’t use color profiles, so don’t embed it because the old browsers won’t use it anyway, and modern ones will default to it.


As far as using dual key softboxes, it’s a not-so-common technique for headshots. There’s one famous celebrity photographer that uses it, although I cannot remember his name. It tends to create some very flat, bright lighting, so you have to feather the boxes well so the ears are not overexposed, and pose the person well (generally looking like a mug shot). Doing this causes some cool eye effects, much like cat eyes.
