So, I am drawing up an assignment that I will be shooting in 3 weeks and would like to get some peoples opinions on how to light my model.
My model has dark hair and the backdrop is a very dark blue/ black muslin. I need the help separate her a little from the background. Would you light her with an undiffused light behind her (pointed at her head) or use the same light turned 180 to light the background?
In case it makes a dramatic difference, the other light will be a 60" octabox or at least a 55" softbox on the my left and a silver reflector on the right. It will also be shot in black and white film from my Mamiya(RB67) then scanned with an Imacon.
Thanks for any help.
