For the lighting, I used a beauty dish from the right angling onto the sitter. I also used a snoot that would give a halo effect to the sitter, the snoot was used to direct the lighting only onto the backdrop. I found this set up the most successful.
Here is the lighting set up I used for the photo shoot:
Overall, I found that capturing photographs portrait/vertical rather than horizontal was the most successful. I have also changed the photograph to a black and white monochrome effect in Capture One. As the sitter was wearing different tones of grey, I found changing the complete photograph to black and white worked well.
