Interesting challenges with close up beauty photography. The power of Macro photography is simply beautiful. working simply with a beauty dish and tri reflectors is very refreshing. Although the freckles were not real this did present a slight problem with lighting. Never the less I found a solution using clam lighting, that seems to work. I will leave you to think up your own solution as the saying goes, " one man's ceiling is another man floor". Natural freckles are not too hard to deal with but painted freckles are a little more tricky. The key to it is to use reflective light source rather than a direct light source., we at least that's what worked for me.
Heres an example. The image to the right is light direct with a beauty dish, the image to the left is reflective light.
