How High Should Your Modifier Be From Your Subject

Sandra Coan Off Camera Lighting For Film Photographers

You know I love answering questions that I get online, and this question came in from one of my followers on social media last week. 

She asked: "How high should my modifier be from my subject" 

Great question!  

There is no right or wrong answer... it's really just about the look you want.  I LOVE catchlights and soft shadows, so this is how I do it
