Blowing out white backgrounds

March 16, 2010

Actor: Ian Campbell Dunn

This week we have seen more blow outs than an episode of Jersey Shore.  Above is where I put a Nikon speedlite to blow out a white bed sheet behind the actor.  Yes, you heard right; it was a bed sheet.  This was at his apartment not in a studio so I just taped a bed sheet to the wall and set a light about a stop above what the key light was giving me.  The key light (main light) was a Nikon speedlite with a white reflective umbrella on camera left and there was a reflector below him.
