Two quick portraits of my friends, Blake (above) and Willie (below). Willie has some great big windows in his living-room with a translucent curtains. The only way to describe the effect they give is big-fat-window-light. There is one set camera left, and another across the room camera right from behind the subject, which gives just a touch of a highlight and helps the background.
Check out some more examples of b.f.w.l. here and the first two images here.
