OK, so here are some shots in my living room using seamless paper. Just received the paper last week and have been dying to try it. I know I don't have a studio, but ultimately im building on getting to a point where the client wont care if I can pull of the right shots... I was just using a single strobe and in a couple a separate speedlight for a hair light..

I know i had some issues with inverse square, but was just because subject (wife and daughter) were too close to seamless or strobe was too close to them.. know better for next time.

I would like to add a background light for separation and eventually a hair light...but for now, this is my first attempt ever... thanks everyone for your input in the past and here :)

Except for the first one where the light is coming from below her (monster light), I think they look great. And the seamless worked well.

I am going to suggest a reflector and getting your light closer to the subject. It's hitting pretty hard. Walmart sells a white foam project board for a buck or two. Seamless looks great!

Excellent suggestion. These work great.

Thank you SEbr :) I had the reflector on a seperate light stand as close to me as can be as well as my softbox ouf course, but was hoping it would open up that side of my face "enough" but I could have used a seperatespeedlight, but wanted to see how this would work first.

I really like all three. Third one has good character. Wonder what it would look like with a tighter crop and bw... actually all three would be nice in bw.

Great job.
