Nightstar: this series was taken at home, with natural light from the window. I used two types of backdrops. For the first shot, white backdrop was used to create a high-key effect. The last one was taken with a black backdrop. The first three shots were processed with soft effect. The 3rd one was processed with 2-pass soft effect, in which u may see the soft edges. I spent much longer time to setup and find suitable angles. It worth more effort to achieve better results.
