I always liked out side, sunny day get the right angle and natural lighting like that, especially if you have a tan.

I like about 4-5 pm during the late spring summer months...its like the perfect angle that time of day/year.

outside natural light early afternoon so you get the downward shadows that make your definition stand out more. lol

Just be consistent with the settling/lighting or incremental progress won'y be detected... because as you said, lighting makes a world of difference.
