This was shot in the stairwell of my apartment in Milano which is painted white. So I put a strobe head behind the model allowing the light to bounce everywhere.

For Photographers

The Gear:
Canon digital camera set to 400 ISO and using 1/160 second shutter speed with a
Canon 28-70mm zoom lens set to 68mm and f4

The Light:
Lumedyne battery powered strobe pack using a
Lumedyne round strobe head with a reflector at the top of the stairs.

You can see the door open just enough to put the head and light stand.

I used a Manfrotto backlight stand using the short stud. I put one of the light stand's legs under the door, as this stand has low and flat legs.
