05 Aug Classic B&W Seamless
Shooting in a white seamless environment, a standard for modeling and product photography portfolios, is a pretty straight forward process. Throw a subject on a huge sheet of white paper, light the model, light the white paper to blow it out white, creating a white abyss around your subject. I’ve shot seamless for years, it’s appropriate for so many shoots, yet I’ve been shooting more seamless lately with all but the key light off, not blasting that background with a ton of light. This brings a lot more… what I’d like to call intimacy into the composition. Varying your light and subject distance from the background, you get varying degrees and gradients of light falloff on the background. I loved how this set came out. Seamless with just a single key light on the subject.
