Dave Iíd like to ask you 2 questions if I may.
To make it easier Iím talking non Location, eg: Studio only
First whatís your view on backdrops?
Do you like plenty of air between the Model and the drop.?
Or do you prefer to shoot the Model close to the drop?

Or maybe you do both?

My next question, also in two parts but mainly about personal preference.
Do you like shooting with fixed focal lens.
Eg: full figure would be 35mm and Portraits would be 85 mm
(Of course if you use a Hasselblad that would equate accordingly to 50 mm and 150 mm)
so that you and your Model would be about 2 meters distant

or

Do you prefer to shoot long, eg: say 200 mm and find yourself standing against the backwall
Focus would be very sharp, but also very narrow.

or once again maybe you do both? Ö for different reasons.

Hmm..I replied to this once but it's not showing up.

Depending on what I am trying to accomplish, I may have my model right up against the backdrop, or many feet away.

If I am looking for a fashion shot, I might put my model right up against the backdrop, so as to create a slight soft shadow, or, a hard shadow. How close or far my main light is will determine the strength of that shadow, as well as what my light modifier is. How far off to the model's right or left will determine the length of that shadow.

Then again, if I was a spot light on the backdrop, or a separation light on her hair and shoulders, I may have her a few feet away from the backdrop.

I do not own a fixed focal length lens. I shoot with an 18-105 VR or a 70-300 VR. Those are the only two lenses I use. I also sold all of my fast lenses. I don't need them for what I do.
