Get rim lighting using one light and one modifier

How to use it:
Once you have your lights set up the way I explain in the diagram above, your first step is to pose your model. You are limited with tight shots using this set up, but the results are beautiful none-the-less.
After you're satisfied with the pose, your second step is to set your exposure so that your sensor doesn't pick up ANY ambient light. I typically achieve this with an aperture at around f/8-11 and a SS of 1/200-1/300. Of course, that isn't always true, though.
Your third step is to set the power of your strobe or speedlight to achieve the exposure that you want. This may take a couple of test fires to figure out, but worth your time.
