2 seperate things - the bg is fabric - the floor is? That is the question.

don't live in Vegas, but if you look at that photo, it is shaped exactly like tile board...and it looks like the cloth is on top of the tile board in that photo...

edit: but i'm purely speculating here...i guess he should chime in and let you know. :D

^^^^ - Pic #3 - What's the white material taped down over the fabric bg? Totally thinking the material they shrinkwrap boats being pulled down the highway in???

It's a large format banner printing media. I don't know where the company gets it but we get a roll that weighs about 150lbs and cut off lengths for the sets. It's 6ft wide. It is a shing white material with reinforcing threads imprgnated in it. Set the way it is in pic 3 the spill from the background lights obliterates the line of the back of the material. There's still a 'line' resulting from the exposure transition, but it is much more natural looking.

Perhaps something like this:

The tileboard is nice until you try to fit it in a car.


All The best!

Paul - you're holding out on us!!!! What about this pic??? Vinyl?

You've got a nice photobucket there - guessing the camping blog is more important than the photo one :)

Yeah i think that's a phone shot... (also) you see the modeling light effect on the bg. You don't see the subject light effect though. the idea is for the forground to not be so grayed out The material is nice on flat floors where you can tape it securely with duct tape. On carpets it blows.

What a great thread!

Here's my space. I shoot mostly products so I don't need a huge studio. I rent space when needed for larger jobs.

All my lighting equipment packs into two large custom wheeled cases, the cameras and computers go into separate hard cases. Everything transports easily for location work too.

Just curious what camera you are shooting with it looks medium format?

Thanks ser8302,

Damian75, yes the camera is medium format, it's a Mamiya RZ67 with a digital back.

Sounds like nice setup, been using borrowed RZ67 but with a 120 back. That camera is a beast ^^

What back do you have on there it makes the RZ look small :)

Oh sweet, i never saw this thread before...

Note: The wide angle and modifiers are deceiving.... that's a 16' ceiling. :)
This is just the shooting section, there are bedrooms, storage and client seating area as well. I just moved in, i still have lots of work to do. It already looks much different, but I'll do an after shot when it's complete. It'll be a vintage French motif.

@squaresnappr, in the following pic it looks like right portralite is higher than the left one (I have seen somewhat similar positioning in elinchrom dlite broucher as well). Is this the way you usually shoot? If so why do you prefer it over shooting both at same height?

I just took a pic like that, I actually move the couch back and move fill back 1-2 stops. I have improved in the modifier department and don't use the portalites anymore. I use an Elinchrom Rotalux Deep throat 100 cm as my Key light up higher and my Elinchrom Rotalux Octa lower down and 1 stop back as fill. I didn't know that it was wrong to do that and that you should shoot at the same height.
