    You use a 'background light' :er:
    A light that points at the backdrop rather than on the subject. The position of the light and the type of modifier will affect how it the fall of looks.

    Also, please remember that we are not allowed to display images that are not our own, so please change the image to a link. Thanks.

    possibly a flash on the floor aimed at the backdrop...better yet the light look like its coming from the top-front overhead to its basically just being creative with it

    I'm not exactly an expert in studio lighting but a probable set up would be lighting up the background so that it glows, then lighting up the models face so that you still get details in his face that might otherwise be lost...


    Maybe..... but it sounds right :)
