Shooting headshots with two flashguns
Adding a second flash to your lighting set-up gives you extra options.
Position your main light first to determine the light on the subject, and then you can introduce a second flash to give more lighting options.
You can also use your second flash as a background light – position the flash behind the subject to produce a pool of light on the background around the subject; attach a piece of black card to the flash to create a funnel or ‘snoot’.
