Lighting Beauty Shot

of course this depends on the faces,make up,back ground etc.but you probably start with a ruff general set up.wuld you use soft boxes,flos,ring lites or fresnels.
i know this is very general but those music video lighting stiles do' look a bit alike',to understate.

i'll use large soft source for key as it's a group, fresnel back light and back light in the frame.
usualy young girls brings little problems when it come to lighting. )

thanks for your help guys.i try to light them soft to avoid unpleasant shadows but then again i don't want them to look to flat or to glossy.since they are young i'm not afraid to give them some shape.the shoots on sunday,we are shooting under a grid of 25 striplights so i have to look out for dark eyeholes.
