Advice for a shoot

#1mango03Posted 4/8/2012 2:19:10 PM
Hey Guys, just wondering if anyone could give me some tips for creating a certain shot in mind. The shot itself is a teenage girl sat on a swing but i want her to stand out but have quite a dark background. Ive got in mind creating a snoot for my speed light and keep that on her off to the side but how should i expose for the background? Should i underexpose the background to get the darkness? Any suggestions welcome.

Do you have lighting/reflectors or will it all be natural lighting?
