hi my friends I was thinkin' about my last images, some isolated pictures of different things and subjects I've taken to test my new lighting equipment.
I've realized that i have not processed them with photoshop beacuse they don't need it...
i've tried two simple tricks to get a great amazing white background!
you only need a couple of flash and a white bed sheet.
for these images i've placed a flash with softener on the subject, I've moved it to find the right position where diffuse light falling on the subject at the right exposure using it at 1/4 power. (a white reflector was positioned on the other side of the subject)
then I've placed the second flash behind the subject aimed at the white bed sheet using it at 1/1 power.
two lights of different power hit the scene, the first soft on the subject, the second at full power on the white background surely makes it overexposed... don't place the model close to the bed sheet to prevent strange reflextions
in this situation I've tried another tip to get the perfect white over and under the straw basket! usually there are shadows under every object placed on a white paper sheet so... let's try to lift it!
i've put the straw basket on an empty water glass using the same flash set I've prepared before.
the glass really disapper during the shot, the subject is floating in the air and the white you see over and under the straw basket is the white bed sheet lighted by the full power flash!
calyx22 you can do it with a couple of flash, i'm using strobes now but I've always done the same way with flashes alexa_adrian i'm writing a post about studio lightning, i will publish it on my blog, I'm using now two/three strobes 180w and white backgrounds, bed sheet, seamless paper, white boards...
nice tips ;) Can you write me a list of lightning equipment that you are talking about, maybe that you could even take a photo of all your scenery :) I don't know how could sent to me, am I allowed to write my email address, I don't know the rules yet :|
