I was hired to shoot red carpet style portraits when guests arrive at an event. I elected to use a Profoto umbrella (m- white) with their diffuser added, and two flash units on the only umbrella as key light, plus a shoot-through umbrella off to the side for fill.
But the problem I faced that was harsh light. Guests appeared to have quite greasy skin, so I got hotspot reflections for instance on their foreheads.
Can anybody tell me how to make this light softer?
