NO!!!!!!!! The further the light is from the subject, the harsher the light is. Move the lights closer! If the lights cannot be dialed down, use a lower ISO or put a white cloth over the front of the box or umbrella to cut down the power. I normally never do a single portrait at anything but f/4-f/5.6. Also, 45 degree set up is for making copies...not people. One light at camera position, one at a 45 degree angle is ok.
Good to know. Thanks again.
