Hi all,

Um, I want to do what Jerry A. did with Halle Berre when he used iced tea on the material in front of his strobe. My question is what kind of material was it? I built myself a 4x8 ft. diffusion panel and have used white, rip-stop nylon as diffusion material but it is really harsh because it's so white. I want a softer light, like the Halle shots. I'll probably slap a warming filter on and do some test shots with that too. In any event, any ideas?

Mike

Soak some cotton sheeting in tea, nylon ripstop may not take the color.

I am not kidding

Or go get antique cloth that has yellowed with age.


Good luck

Stu

Thanks Stu. By cotton sheeting do you mean just like sheets that I would put on my bed? And yes, the ripstop won't take the color very well unless I found a way to dye it or something.

I'm off to tear up a sheet or two. Hope the wife doesn't draw and quarter me. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Good day sir!

I always try to modify my light before it hits the lens. It's easier to get subtle changes. Shoot polaroids, or check your digital shots by downloading one and checking it on your monitor.
Your brain constantly makes automatic color corrections i.e. the reason people dont look so green under uncorrected flourescent lights but do in uncorrected prints.

and yes just buy some cheap white sheets, if you use the wife's expensive ones she may well hang you with it.

What you cover the panel with will affect the color and the pattern of the light that hits the model. However, it is the size of the light that determines how soft the light is. The larger the light source relative to the model the softer the shadows will be. If you took your 4x8 panel with the rip stop nylon and moved it closer to the model, the light would become softer.
Cheers,
rfs
