can always bounce the light off the walls/ceiling
i also have broom and mop
correct me please.but if you put the hairlight SB to the left of the subjects, no matter how high the SB is and how powerful it is, the subject nearer the SB will STILL get the most hairlight, as oppose to subject to my right(subject furthest from hairlight SB).no?
You are right. But I have experience when I must make hairlight but don't have boom, I use this technique. Cause most SB or Standard reflector have a hot spot (more strong in center than edge), so I tilt up the lamp till it distribute well to the object.
Or u can change to std reflector, bounce to the ceiling, ... tilt up/down till it distribute well.
Have you use yahoo instant messenger or google talk? We can discuss
hairlight can also be placed bottom centre and light from the back
but what colour is your intended background?
aiya if too complicated, just bounce from ceiling.
........ aiya if too complicated, just bounce from ceiling. .... right man ... just try, decide and shoot.
actually bounce from ceiling must also know how to biunce
You can buy a couple of mannequins and experiment with lighting...
The large softbox can be frontal but placed slightly higher above head level and tilted slightly down so the shadows get thrown down behind the subjects. Not too high also or you will get shadows below the chin.
Play with the power ratio to get the desired lighting. Beware of the shadows which will be cast by the umbrella. Set the frontal light for the main exposure and adjust the side light to get you enough highlight for the hair and background without getting too much shadows from it. I think this would be the best you can get with 2 lights.
