    Say Hello to (the many faces of) Cheyenne

    My 2nd daughter has had a friend over for the day, and we needed to kill an hour or so before a movie started ... and since we were already at the studio ...

    Very nice series. Kerry was wanting to put together a collage set - that's a great way of doing it.

    Pretty cool!
    What makes up the white background? I was thinking of getting a roll of paper for some white background stuff.
    Thanks for sharing Colin

    Hi Brian,

    It's white seamless paper (comes in 12m rolls 3m or 6m wide), then one hits it with a couple of strobes behind the model set to about 1/3 stop over-exposure.

    Cool, I picked up a roll at the craft store today - only 4' wide though.

    Hi Brian,

    Hope it works well for you - if nothing else, I think you'll learn a lot from it. 4' wide is pretty narrow, so you'll need to use a fairly long lens to narrow the FoV. I like to keep the subjects several metres in front of the background to blur any patterns and stop key / fill / hair lights contaminating the background, but you won't have to worry about this with white (you will need to light it seperately thought).

    The next "colour" is black, but I'd suggest stitching together some black velvet material as it's much less reflective than black paper roll.

    Colin, thank you for your advice. I know and agree that 4' wide is pretty narrow for full body shots in particular, but for $5 I thought I would try it out nd as you said - I would learn from it!
    I do have some black fabric that I have used once before for a high school senior photo that turned out pretty good. BUT, it did t suit my tastes for a full body shot - that's why I wanted to try a paper.

    Hi Brian,

    Don't forget that you can actually join two roles together pretty easily; the seam is a LOT easier to deal to than whatever else you might have hiding away. Just don't be tempted to over-light it -- it'll kill the fine detail in hair. Personally, I use black and white backgrounds; often which works best depends on hair & skin colour. If I use white, I usually don't leave too much whitespace around the subject at it draws the eyes in every difection apart from the face
