I've been learning studio techniques in my photography club. Here is a gallery of photos of lovely folkloric dancer "Farida" in various costumes and poses. Critiques welcome. What disappointed me is my attempt to light the off-white background paper with coloured gels didn't work well at all. Maybe too washed out by spill from the key light?

Here's a sample:

Overall I think you did pretty good. Your lighting looks good.

Nice shots. On the matter of lighting the background, try this:

Without the model, light and shoot the background with your gels till you get the color you want. Note the exposure.

Now put the model in place and light her independently, but in such a way that the exposure will be the same as it was for the background. Try to keep that lighting from spilling onto the background.

You should then be able to get any colored background you want. Its all in the "chromazones" they used to say.



Cheers,
rfs
