Shot some headshot/portrait stuff of film director Ramon Menendez for PR and marketing use. i don't consider myself a portrait photographer so it was not really my cup of tea but he's a friend of a friend who recommended me and i figured i couldn't mess it up much worse than anyone else might. Ramon, amongst a whole bunch of TV stuff and other film credits, directed one particular noteworthy film you might remember, "Stand and Deliver," starring james olmos in the true story of the hispanic schoolteacher who taught inner city kids calculus and then helped them go on and win some national academic competitions.

here's ramon.

thanks don. uhhh... 5' octodome quite close about 45 degrees camera right w/center of dome about eye level and feathered away from him. a 14x61 strip softbox behind him to camera right with 2 pieces of foamcore, either side of the strip, acting like barn doors further narrowing the spread of the strip. a small silver umbrella boomed overhead for some backlight/hairlight. a white panel camera left to bounce just the tiniest bit of fill light back in.

you sure nailed that tiny bit of fill....I love the shadows but filled enuff to see the detail in his skin...I think its time I built reflector panel...
PVC is cheap enuff....as for the material. could have used just a touch in this image.

the optimum material would be china silk. but you could also stretch some white shower curtain material over a pvc frame. that way you can bounce off of it or use it as a diffuser and blow the light thru it. you might consider making the frame somwhere around 3' x 5' or 4' x 6' or somewhere around these dimensions.

Thank you sir!! I was going to check the fabric stores for pricing on white Nylon..then grab a couple of those reflective camping blankets gold and silver...see what I come up with for effects. I think 4x6 would be the to go..I want to experiment with shooting thru it...like I saw in one of your lighting set up images...I saw how the light was turn to feather off of it....do you flag infront of the light too keep it from..spilling around the panel?

i have a french flag i sometiems attach to the stand, bending the gooseneck up and using it to flag the camera side of the strobe to prevent flare. and sometimes, yeah, i do use something larger (usually foamcore) to flag the panel to reduce spill and direct the light. i've also thought of attaching some vertical blinds to the front of the panel to act like a louvre grid. haven't done this yet, but its on my list of things to do and try... verticals with a black finish would be cool. since the panel is kept fairly close to the subject, the light is very soft and the louvres shouldn't cast a noticeable shadow pattern.
