    I wouldn't because that would just end up killing your contrast. It's not so much the lack of light, but rather the direction of the light. Play w/ the direction of the light and proximity of your reflector.

    I would have gotten it to the side of me more but there is a shelf and a wall about 2 feet or so just out of frame on the left, there wasn't much room for my umbrella :hs:

    and another wall a couple of feet to the right that was giving me a lot of bounce/fill that I didn't want :o

    tape a white sheet of paper to a light stand and place it just to your left and front. It will create a nice catch light in your eye and help to fill in the shadow.

    Oh, and you really could be Woody Harrelsons twin.
