At one time there was a thread where the OP was having trouble lighting white background paper. His background lights were too hot and the white light wrapped around the edges of his model. I've searched for it, but can't seem to find it. Several offered ways and suggestions, but RG replied explaining how to meter the light coming off the background paper at the model's back. I believe he said to meter the bg lights at 2/3's a stop less then the main light at the model. Is this correct? Also, how much more should a hair or rim light be over the main? Thanks for the help

Yeah, that's it. You probably went right to it on the first search, right? How did you find it? Thanks too, btw.

Actually, I am a big sponge right now. Whenever I find something useful, I bookmark it. I've got a lot of bookmarks, which, surprisingly, are reasonably well organized.

If you try doing a Google search as follows:

site:www.glamour1.com white spill background

then you would have nailed the thread on the first attempt.

You can also use the Search built right into the Forum system. Here is a screen shot of the steps:



Just click on Forums in the top level menu, then click on search (its circled in red on the 2nd black bar menu and its red at this point since I've selected it). Then key in the search words, and choose the option I've shown below, and then click Go.

If you click on the Advanced link (in yellow), then you have even more options such as specifying which user's post you're looking for.

Experiment around with the Advanced search as it works quite nicely.

Cheers,
rfs
