Side light and its value

I used two lights for this portrait. There was a 'hot' box to my left and the on board flash. I used two lights to create some dimension in the image. The hot box caused light to fill the left side of the image and the flash filled in their faces, eliminating dark shadows under the eyes.

Experiment with using two lights to light your subjects. Keep in mind if you use a hot box or any light that is 'on' always, the subjects will get 'hot' and blinded by the lights.

The settings for this image: f/5.6 1/60 second ISO 200 using the Tamron 17-50 f/2.8
