When you think you need two lights, use one light. When you think you need three lights, use one light.
I agree with Frank.
I took this this shot (actually before I meet Frank) with with one light (Canon 580EX II) in a Westcott Apollot soft box . . . carefully adjusting my exposure to include some of the background light.
Keep it simple, use one light . . . unless you need 87 speedlites like our friend Joe McNally. :-)
