    Default rim light

    is this the light that you are looking for?



    As mentioned earlier, there is a light at the back of the subject, either high or low, the high/low position is to reduce the possibility of lens flare.

    In this case there is a spot light at the top rear of the subject.
    Most concert lighting use this to make the subject stand out from the background.

    I hope this helps

    it is just a wooden box, we got people to build it. My partner took care of that so I dunno how much it cost. It's pretty common to get people to build sets, so just go down to a carpenter and ask them for a quote.

    But note, the white box needs constant maintanence, it gets dirty very easily.

    nice big and clean studio.

    Ask the carpenter to laminate it with matt white colour and then you can just wipe it clean. Just a suggestion.

    hmm yeap, i'm thinking of getting a white and black box. is your box heavy? last time i tried to construct a crude box (not for photography but other things) and it got so heavy i need to put wheels below to move it.

    wonder anyone can recommend a carpetner for this.

    laminated with matt white formica is still reflective. use eg. maxilite wall white(dull) paint. repaint as often as necessary.

    Is it something like this? I use 3 lights, 1 in front abt 45 degree, 2 background lights left and right. Then added 2 white card board (big ones) to surround the model left and right.

    i suppose the two white cards are placed angling towards the camera to pick up and reflect lights from the 45 degrees light.

    Outdoor natural rim light?
    As complexity rises, precise statements lose meaning and meaningful statements lose precision.

    I love this. No fanciful light boxes, scrims, gobos. Just plain simple use of existing light!
