Here's one quick one from today

I know I blew the highlights with the rim/kicker light....but I'll live with it. (maybe a bit more processing to play with it)

Deep throat high to camera left, feathered in front of her. 40 degree gridded rim light back and camera right.

Nothing as nice as the other pictures posted here, but... Completely dark, three flashes (one on camera).

Sweet photo Tessa.

Pic has two flahes one camera left, copping all the dirt and camera right blinding the driving, setting are around 1/4th - 1/8th

IMAGE: http://48frames.zenfolio.com/img/v2/p840857875-3.jpg

All eyes on me....
Should'nt they be watching the road and not me though ?
Lit just the same way as the last pic, camera left and right with around 1/2 - 1/4th power.

Probably wondering who the dingdong is that keeps trying to blind them :)

I don't know how creative these are, pretty straight forward but in both of these I have two lights behind the background, you can kinda get the drift in the 2nd photo.

Both photos two lights with umbrellas from the front and two lights behind and shot into the background.

So do you mean the lights are actually behind the background and shot through, or behind the subjects and shot at the back ground?

Behind the background and shot through it. I always use this method when doing full lengths on white. You don't have to worry about light spilling on your subject or being able to get even coverage on the seamless.

And it's just regular seamless paper? I wonder why I've never heard it suggested before?

I think it's because most people don't have the luxury of having several feet behind their background to fire lights. In most cases we try to get the background as close to the wall as possible so that we can get separation between subject and background.

I also think (and Allen can correct me if I'm wrong) that it takes a bit more firepower to properly illuminate the white paper from behind whereas it doesn't take all that much to do it from the front.

HI Allen,

My question about lighting the background as you are is this.....

I can see how it would do a good job of evenly lighting the background but if the light is not reflecting off the front of the paper then how do you get enough light on the floor to render it white under and around your subjects? Are you using additional lights for that? If so how are they positioned so as not to get cross shadows?

Umbrellas in close pointed so they spill light all over the paper and subjects. I usually have one over camera and one at about 20 degrees to my left or right about an arms length away from me and the camera and up kinda high so the shadow wont be real long and they are set with the fill only about a half stop less than the key or main. I used to have some photos of the set up I'll see if I can find them. I couldn't though last time I looked. Oh and both of these were on location.
