I have seen a lot of information on swimsuit shooting that would indicate you should to get the model underneath a scrim to get good results. I am a little bit puzzled about this. I can see shooting a head and shoulders shot like this or maybe cropped somewhere just below the waist. But how do you do this if you are shooting something full length? Isn't there a shadow on the ground around the subject in this situation or am I missing something?

Does the shoot require a full length?? Can you get by with 3/4? Can you shoot at different angles? Can you airbrush or photoshop other elements? Can you wait until sweet light? The bottom line is getting the main subject lit properly and if that takes a scrim or one that still casts unwanted shadows on other elements, so what, I want that model to be the focus so little things like the background and other elements that may or may not be distracting, becomes second nature and something not picked on so much.

Would you rather have a model that looks great with a semi-distracting background or would you rather have a model that looks bad but an ok natural scene?

Better yet, plan your shoots around sweet light and never worry about a scrim at all....unfortunately, sitting around waiting for sweet light can drive a photographer nuts......so they created a thing called Scrims so we can go play right after lunch......

However, you will probably need at least two assistants, working with what is called a "butterfly", which is the same thing in super size, not on a frame. Your assistants have to hold it in place by hand, or with poles.

Of course....it is easier to go shoot when the light is right, without the scrim. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
