I am in to crops, angles, weird stuff lately. I had forgotten that I had a news years resolution to break rules, so I am trying to catch up in the last few weeks of the year. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
This particular blue is Studio Blue. What I normally try to do, keeping in mind my studio is small, is set my lights so they begin to lose power shortly after the model. That way the color goes deeper and darker. Then when I set levels and curves to get to the skin tones I want the background seems to fall where I invisioned it. Keep in mind, if I planned the shot to be a full length and lit it that way then there may be lighter areas on the backdrop but they get cropped on a tighter image.
Hope that helps, I was supposed to have a client here at 10 witha two year old and I have been edgy. I'm not sure whether I am happy or upset that they are late. Two year olds normally have me near insanity by the end of the session. It's alway good though to hear the client say 'Thank you for being so sweet and patient with Timmy. The people at 'XXXX Studio' gave up after 30 minutes with him. I can see why. Perhaps being a grandparent rather than a 20 something does help at times.
