    white background??... bounce your flash to prevent shadow casting on whatever is behind her??..... framing starts from above chest level??.... and ask her to SmiLeZ... hee

    Do it in a studio or take softboxes, etc to the location. Flash won't do it.

    Some things can hardly be learnt through the mere use of words. For a start, search the web for some pointers on how to go about. I'm sure you'll be able to find quite a lot of useful material if you Google.

    1 single flash wont do the job that well unless ur damn good at setting up lighting thru use of reflectors and so on. Use a white backdrop. Some people have a dedicated light that shine on the white backdrop to eliminate the shadows.

    Another important thing is pose. Go look through corporate reports and u will see what angle is "standard" and "expected".

    it is not as simple as a lighting set up, you need to study her face, light the face according to her feature, give posing and expression directions etc, for a good CV portrait.

    better ask her to spend the money, go to Portraits Gallery to get it done.

    it will look good on her CV, rather than a passport photo.

    There are many steps and pre-steps to achieve a good portrait. Going to a studio is always the best solution.

    Need help, give me a call... will see if I can be of help. I do own a studio though.
