Studio Lighting 101

I took this picture with a home made softbox. While the light seemed good enough for a doll, it didn't quite work out when I tried to photgraph Aparna.





This one had a 20''x20'' softbox with a 200 watt bulb to the viewer's right, reflector on the left and a background light. It was easy enough making the softbox using foam core but I'm not sure how to mount them and control the height and angle of incidence.

Here is a series of pictures showing the effect of adding the different lights one by one.
