In a posting by Susie, in words, I couldn't get my words out about a lighting method.
This portrait was done with two lights, the diagram below shows where the lights were placed and the image shows how she was situated and the effect of the lighting.
Black cards were taped to the lights acting like barn doors, Duct tape can be very useful in desperate times.
Gobo, meaning, a piece of foam core board was used as a blocker of light to the camera lens. The lights in this position are almost directed at the camera, more so, the one to camera left.
