Ballet Portrait Lighting


I am doing a Senior Portrait shoot and one of the poses is the model in her Ballet outfit at her Dance School. Any suggestions on how to use lighting (besides Natural)if she wants a photo in front of the wall mirror? I have 3 SV strobes (100 w/sec) with umbrellas and a soft box. My concern is any flash reflecting off the mirror or the mirror causing any unwanted light. What would be a good way to set the flashes up?

yes Jeff,
Good Morning,
first off do some with dramatic lighting, using just your main light close in different poses.
Now the mirror one,
you build yourself a black box,
and you use your lighting over the top, and camera to the side.
and the posts you see will be the out come.
for more detailed instuction contact me for a number and i'll walk ya through it.
hope this helps,
Debby
