you want to do the same is it?

paint a wall white, and the floor black

get a flash with softbox, the softbox don't have to so big, around 2' by 3 will do, don't have softbox, use umbrella also can.

mount the flash on the light stand or tripod, the flash don't have to set so high, haft the height of the model and aim up.

find a model stand in front of the wall and shoot.

This is taken by my normal digital cam. back drop i use a cloth. It appears to be blueish is cause of my wall. And i adjust the manual settings so it doesn't look so dark. The pictures that i want to achieve, is it taken in a studio? or is it with a lot of lighting? really clueless.

to get pure white background, you need to light your subject and background separately.

you can tape the white cloth on a door frame, and use whatever lights you able to find and blast the white cloth from behind. (overexposed by two stops)

than make your model stand in front the white cloth, light her the way you want it.

hi,

Check out my blogsite

It's easy to setup backdrop if you have space/money. As for flash, I am enthusiast for using simple flash (such as Canon 580EX and 430EX). You can also buy umbrella at very low cost.
