All Of These Are Just Like The Others…

There is a common theme in all of these photos.  They were all shot with the same background.  Check back in through the week because I’m going to show you how it is done.

    That’s some killer stuff Zack. Looking forward to the updated ‘revival’ ;-)

    Zack -

    Been a while since I got to meet you after the GA Strobist meet, but I wanted to drop you a note to let you know I’m enjoying following the blog, and specifically looking forward to seeing the tips behind the lighting on these shots.

    Hope the new studio is working out well for you. Keep up the great work.

    OK….how was the red background done – all in computer after the shoot? I have a roll of 9 foot seamless sitting around my garage & never use it! I’m hoping to be inspired!

  • zack said on April 29, 2008

    Hi Kay,
    I’ll be addressing that this week in further posts about shooting on white seamless. The fast answer is I put red gels on the background light but there are a few other things to do to get it right.

    The white to sepia gradient in the photo above was done in post production but it is something that can be done in 30 seconds. NO masking needed.

    Cheers,
    Zack
