Fun pics and a great mix of color. Like the 1st one best by far. The girl in the 2nd shot looks like she just fell from a 10th story building! Really diggin that background color!May I ask how you lit the background, and how you keep the floor area clean?
Mine are always getting so dirty, that I have to cut some off before using next time.
The paper is Superior #61 'Blue Lake'. This is a four light setup. The key is camera right; Norman ML600R with a Photoflex 3x4' softbox and eggcrate grille. Fill is an Alien Bee AB800 with 48" octobox symmetric and opposite to the key. Key metered at f/8 on Tim. Fill metered at f/5.6 at Carly-Erin.
BG lights are AB-800's with 30x60 softboxes on board. Metered at approx f/5.6 but adjusted so test shots didn't come out like chroma key. I initially tried f/8 on the BG, but it looked like a bad knockout job. I needed to back them down quite a lot to make the shot look right.
As far as keeping the paper clean... Any color other than white will last quite a long time if you're reasonably careful. White is good for two shoots before I cut some off. Remember you can always use the back side of the paper too before you cut. Ancient secret :biggrin:
