Hi,

I have to shoot a headshot for a hair spa and the client wants the model's hair to look shiny and healthy.

The angle is tricky as the model needs to lie down with her hair fanned out in curls. Any suggestions or lighting tricks from pros out there?

I am totally not prepared for this. I am not sure what angles to point my lights at. Help?

:dunno:

Har... then how come you even take this assignment? Scarly leh if client sees this.

Anyways, go gettyimages creative library and browse through some 'hair' photos and analyze lighting position. If you've used studio strobes you should have no problem analyzing it.
