This shot was lit using small strobes on manual settings and Cybersync radio transmitters, as the infrared line-of-sight Canon wireless system is pretty close to useless for a situation like this where the strobes need to be placed around corners away from view. I put one speedlite in an umbrella on a stand just out of view at the end of the hallway, bouncing light off the far wall to illuminate the background and put a slight rim light on her, and one speedlite in a snoot in a little bathroom (perched precariously near the toilet) just opposite her (camera left) to create the illusion of sunlight coming through a window. If I remember correctly, I had a touch of fill from an on-camera speedlite bounced off the ceiling. The phone was edited in from another frame during the same shoot.
