Just something funny that happened today..

So I shot two models today one I have known for years and a new model that is just 19yrs old. The 19yr old came over with her mother. And there is nothing wrong with that. So I started the shoot and all is going great. I asked if anyone needed a drink ? The mother said sure I could use a little water or soda. So I gave her a soda. After about 30 mns into the shoot I went to change the lens. I looked for my lens cap all over the place. Guess who had it ? The mother had it. She was useing it as a coaster for her drink. That is the first time that has ever happened to me...I had a good laugh over it..

Mike

How do you like my studio ? My client and one of the models..

Looks like you had a good time. What kind of material is the background made out of? It looks glossy, or is that just my imaginagtion?

The gloss your seeing is probably plexiglass on the floor placed above the seamless. Put it on top of black seamless and you get a nice mirror effect.

It's just white seemless paper and plexiglass on the floor on top of the paper.

I had four lite working with this shoot. 2 to lite the seemless at f11 and 2 softboxes to light the model at f 8. I would have done it better but in the small space I have it's all I could do.

A question for those who use plexiglass, what thickness do you recommend using?

I am thinking that perhaps 1/4", 3/8 or even 1/2" would work.

I use 1/4 with no trouble...this stuff gets heavy.
