Joe Ferreti-Raucci on Seamless

My first foray into white seamless.  Man, I love this stuff!!!

First, the pictures of the handsome little guy:

Any vignetting you see is caused by Lightroom plugins, not the setup.  I think a few of these could use a little dodging to get to pure white, but you get the idea.

 

Seamless Setup

First, hats off to the master, Zach Arias – I followed his sage advice closely when I put together my seamless setup.

I got the 9’ roll of paper at Calumet photo (locally, in Oak Brook, IL – boy, the shipping charges were insane to get it online).

Used some folding doors I had in the basement to use as flags.  Lit with two 320ws Photogenic lights (firing at 1/16th or 1/8th) for the backdrop, a 750w hot light in a softbox for fill (Westcott Spiderlite to be precise), and a Canon Speedlite to camera right inside a small softbox for the main light.  I used the nifty new PocketWizard remote Flex-TT5 triggers.  Yes, a little flaky with the Speedlite, but they worked well this day.  The Photogenic monolights also had PocketWizards, but the older style.

I will admit, it was a pain to setup the first time, but man, it was great!
