If i had a team and was working with such equipment and model i would feel ashamed by those pictures, shame on you seriously. Gold digging photographer. Go back to cheap family portraits

What backdrop is this
Rayan Chehab (4 months ago)
G Telleria it's not a vinyl but paper backdrop. You can find it around 60$ a roll or less.

Not getting too much with 1/3 of your video on a "cinematic" intro lol

Well that was a waste of 2 minutes and needles to say the light from the window DID play into the shots........

I like how they always say using a 800 w/s strobe here but never tell what power setting its on because its very low. Trying to sale more than help

What height do you set your backdrop at for full length shoots?
Rayan Chehab (4 months ago)
Chloe DeCoito depends if you wanna make the model look taller you need to kneel or sometimes lay down so that makes the backdrop show if not heightened well, if it's only a lookbook shoot and you need eye level (almost) shots you just make it taller about 1 meter. This tutorial is so bad with bad lighting and pictures.

Mate. Thanks, but you have window light ... so this tutorial is not so useful.

Mate. If you put your shutter speed up high enough, it will cancel out any ambient light. So this tutorial is useful.
Bryan Miraflor (1 year ago)
in this video the flash is cancelling out the light from the window.

window light wouldn't matter unless you're shooting at a lower shutter speed.

Thanks for the video. What size is the octabox?
Sedric Beasley (2 years ago)
I'm thinking a bigger modifier wold work better and use only one light.
Rayan Chehab (4 months ago)
Efficiency but a photographer who sucks like this one wants to add to the budget, so he ends up adding the second light on the receipt.

+octap79 is that what you used? You looked a bit close to the model to be getting full coverage from a 24-105

+Van Vangelis 1 - 2 - 3 steps back...it's not science (saved you some money)

What about the window light that's already lighting your model from head to toe with soft directional light without fall off?
Lance Nicoll (3 years ago)
Our exposure is far enough above the window light that it's not having much of an effect. It's providing a little bit of fill light but not a ton.
