Test shot with Rose and Mimi


Last Saturday, Rose helped me set up the huge black background for my portrait photo op. The background spreads to 12 feet wide and 8 feet high. I didn't know what I was thinking when I bought this but that's another story. Then I fixed the lighting. One strobe at the back as the master to provide the rim lighting. The other strobe is the slave facing a white umbrella. I set this at about 45degrees from the subject and angled downwards. I needed to make test shots so Rose and Mimi became my test subjects. I really like how the rim light works here. Very minimal post production. Just burning the background to darken some stray lights.


My client didn't show up so we just ended having fun with the lighting set up the next day. More of that on my next post.
