Behind the Scenes from Last Weeks Shoot

September 19th and 20th I did a shoot with three models: Leann Overmyer, Jess SanGiacomo and Jessieka Martinez-Soto. This shoot involved two sets: a white backlit set and a black one. The two scenes have very different lighting set-ups and today I am writing to let you know how I produced the blown out white background look.

 

White Set: 

Equipment:
- (2) Large Softboxes
- (2) White Flats
- (3) C-Stands
- (2) Rolling Stands
- (3) Broncolor Unilight Lights
- (1) Broncolor Scoro S Power Pack (1600J)
- (1) Beauty Dish
- (1) Boom Arm
- (1) Silk Screen
- (1) Stand for the Silk Screen
- (2) Knuckles
- (2) Sandbags
- (1) Macbook Pro
- (1) Canon EOS 5D Mark III
- (1) 50mm f/1.2L USM Lens
- (1) 45mm f/2.8 Tilt-Shift Lens  
- (1) Pocket Wizard Kit
- (1) Mini-to-Mini Cable


Light Settings: 
- (2) Large Softboxes - 6.0 - 8.0
- (1) Beauty Dish - 1.5 - 3.0
These numbers might have fluctuated between images, at times when I wanted a foggier look to the image I raised the backlights as high as 8.0 and had lowered the beauty dish to as low as 1.5
So these numbers are up to you to determine what you like
