I've made up my mine on the studio setup that I want to do for kids...
White seamless background.
a Christmas tree.
misc props (teddy bear, ornaments, etc)
Now, my equipments are very limited.
My limited equipments are 580ex... 2 umbrella's... a diffuser panel and reflector...
This is my plan... I read it somewhere (forgot where) about one light setup and getting pure white background...
I will put the 580 with umbrella on one side (opposite of the tree) of the subject... put a diffuser panel between the subject and the light, and spill the rest of the light to the background to achieve white background... On the other side I will put a reflector...
Will this work?
1. Does the 580 have enough power? if yes continue to 2
2. Do I really need the umbrella? I will lose some light using the umbrella, right? but since my light is only the 580, don't I need it to be a bigger light source to cover both the panel and the background?
3. which reflector should I use? white or silver
4. will I get a good result with all the props and christmas tree???
