  3. sure.
    but before I go into details of it, I suggest you can do an excerise to take a similar photo (may be in your bedroom) and see what difficulty you ‘ll encountered, then we can continue the discussion
    Just a few remarks 
    1) I only used one hot light source in this photo, it was behind the veil.
    2) the photo is straight out from the camera, I didn’t do any burning or dodging, just adjust the white balance

    Simon,
    have tried myself.
    Is it what you have done? Zero out the ambient, Snooted the flash and fired it on the veil side?

  13. Hi Eddie,
    yes.
    try different combination of 
    distance between camera and the couple
    distance between light and the couple
    discance between the couple and the mirror,
    you ‘ll get different results.
