Thanks Steve!
Somehow, I got on the mailing list for Digital Photo Magazine. Here is a great article about cross lighting from them.

Thanks Georgianne. An excellent article. I tend to use natural light with fill flash and / or reflectors - mainly because the portraits I take are usually at outside events, where it's not so easy to set up the flash units.
Another way is to use Portrait Pro to change the lighting in the processing!   Posted: 12/29/2017 16:06:49

 
Greetings and Happy New Year to all.

Perhaps you all know this, but if you are using Lightroom and ever have a problem or question, Victoria Bampton is the goto source. Check out https://www.lightroomqueen.com/
