Yup! :)

I did a diagonal one, but the focus was off when I brought it in LR3. Didn't see the issue on camera. I liked the diagonal one better, since it could easily be put in the corner of my About Me page instead of top center. I'll probably do a re-shoot.

Thanks! :)

It's actually a 1-light (hence this thread). The background was changed in post - it was just a plain white wall and was not illuminated evenly/well. The light was an AB800 on 1/16 power shot thru a 42" Steve Kaeser umbrella box camera left and slightly up (tilted down).

hahaha, yeah this is the one light thread.... :o

cool, do you know a half decent tutorial for making backgrounds like that, the way i do it seems mor difficult then it needs to be.
i mask the person, fill with color, and white circle gradient/ really soft brush, then mess with blending modes.

When you shoot against an evenly-color wall, you have the benefit of using:
Select-> Color Range
Change Fuzziness to ideal selection
Delete
Create new layer (underneath) and fill with the gradient/color you desire.

It really is about shooting against the proper background. I try not to mess with blending modes, since there's always SOMETHING that gets lost or not included!

I don't have the luxury of seamless yet - no space for it. Not even our new place has the space... and it's a house! :(

With seamless, read up on Zack Arias' blog: http://www.zarias.com …torial-part-1-gear-space/ (external link)

Worth the time to read.
