Portraits from the last weekend

A friend of mine asked me to take a few portraits for his profile in his new work place.
This is quite a simple task, what needed were 2 umbrellas and a reflector and of course rearranging the living room. :)

The setup was simple:
 1) 1 bounce umbrella on the camera left at round 45 degrees to and down the subject
 2) a reflector on the camera right
 3) a shoot through umbrella on the camera right behind the subject for hair light and a little bit of separation from the background.

I used 2 speedlights - canon 580ExII at 1/4 power for the front light and a yong nuo 460II for the back light at 1/16.

Here are a few from the session:
