Well,..from someone who doesn't know Jack,..the backgound looks too white to me,
I dunno,...back the light farther from the bg, so it backlights or rim lights DeAnn and spills a little more purple light on her hair and sides, looks like it is just starting to, especially in the 2cd one.

I ordered some gels,..should be here tomorrow, so I can experiment next week [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

This bg is a purple bed sheet,..sure tough sleeping on the bare mattress [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

No, Ron's right - you've got too much light hitting the background. He (and I) just misunderstood where the light was coming from. Same answer, though - reduce the amount of light hitting the background while holding everything else constant.

If your lights allow it, reduce the intensity of the light coming through the gel onto the back of the background. If not, move it one-and-half or twice as far away than it was for that shot. (Twice as far, one fourth as much light.) OR increase the intensity of the lights hitting the subject and increase the shutter speed proportionantly.

I agree, it's a bit too white, but not bad - beats solid white. Nice work.

On the other hand I'll call it subtle lavender instead of purple and I like it.

This is probably the key to the problem..I had the gelled light turned all the way down..firing straight thru a ripstop nylon panel...I think had I boosted the Main light to a higher fstop..say around f16-22...and set the camera appropriately, thus the background wouldnt have been so bright..experimentation oh what fun it is!!
back the drawing board... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Thanks John! and Ron!!

That'll work IF he's using hot (continuous) lighting... but, if he's using strobes, changing the shutter speed won't do much since the effective shutter speed is determined by the duration of the electronic flash (usually upwards of 1/1,000 and higher).

In that case, John, he'd have to decrease the size of aperture to let in less light.

Set the background light first, then...

Don,

When I've wanted the background to look a particular way, I've always found it better to set it, first, and then bring in the main light to light the subject.

In your case, get that deep rich purple look before DeAnn even comes into the room, then adjust the main strobe for the look you're wanting, being careful to keep the main light away from the background (so it doesn't' wash the front of the ripstop).

Have fun!


BTW - I agree - purple is a nice shade!
