I chose to use my 7' Photoflex Octodome which a great light source if you want a large soft light quality. I have also used it for shooting large groups of people because it has such a large coverage area.
I placed the Octodome over camera and then just to the side a little to add a faint shadow next to the nose.
I then added another monolight next to the camera with diffusion material over it and to act as a fill light and had it set to -1 from the Octodome. Here is the diagram.
I then processed the image in Portrait Professional for the skin smoothing and other features that programs offers.
