Spending a lot of time working on lighting since I built my DIY backdrop holder. Which do you prefer? Is the lighting about right in both images? These are my favorites of both set-ups. 1) Today, I decided to try black background and hair light. So I used the green velour backdrop and put about 6 feet between me and it. Then I used the 38" octabox camera left as key and a speedlight with a rogue flash bender helping to focus the hair light and a reflector to help fill in the left side of the face. 2) For this image, I moved the reflector and replaced it with the speedlight as the fill light on the camera right. The lighting ratio is 4:1 as measured by light meter.
