Hi everyone. This is my first attempt to try a low key, almost seamless backdrop without using photoshop to burn the background. I am pleased that the backdrop turned out the way it did. I used black material and had him about 4 feet from the backdrop.
Canon 40D, 70-200 L Lens, 2 softbox, one on each side.
Update: Jake’s Bath Time Fun was featured (10.19.08) in the Group The Beginners’ Corner Thanks so much to Angi and the group. Much appreciated!!
I know this is not an original type of pose/props, but I wanted some feedback/critique on this please. More for lighting and setup. I used 2 large softboxes, one to the right (my right) and one in center above my camera. If you notice the catch-lights in his eyes seem to high, so I think I needed to lower the lights down as I did have them higher than him.
Also, I forgot to use a plexi to reflect the bubbles and know they look a bit “fake”.
Thanks in advance!!
