I finally invested in a two light setup after playing around with just a single cheap umbrella for a while. This shot was taken against a plain white wall in my house. One umbrella is place directly in front of the model with another to her right. Both strobes were shooting into the umbrellas to give a nice soft bounced light. I was amazed at the difference shooting into the umbrellas made compared to shooting through the umbrellas. I hope to try a few more shots soon if I can get some time and energy.
