Thanks Phil and ocminter. Happy New Year to you too. I know it's going to be a photogenic one! :)
Thanks, Drema, I will try that! Too bad I didn't use fill flash for this one (off-camera, camera right would have been good). I'm pretty sure I've been re-inventing the wheel, but I've found that unmodified flash works best as fill in (relatively) bright light. And it has to be diffusers, umbrellas or low warm off-white bounceable ceilings for good flash-illuminated results in low light - and very few casual "models" would have the patience and dedication to endure any of that. (just sharing my newly invented wheel here :) Triangular is the new round, too! :))
