And then I realized: they have different capacities for light sources of different diameter umbrellas … Need to look for your light! So where do I start? Let's start with the number of light sources. Must be at least two. But if you can budget it is better to purchase three sets of 'stand-blaze-umbrella'. Now the background. In the background you try not to use a different synthetic fabrics (such as gabardine) because of their color shade can vary from pale purple to whitish-blue. And this is something we do is unnecessary.
By the way, as an option, you can use as a background drawing glued sheets of drawing paper. Start with two light sources. Scheme 1. We put a chair at a distance of 60-80 cm from the background. Have Umbrellas 45-degree angle to the subject at a distance of 120-150 cm and a level above his head sitting on a 50-80 cm and then matures a few 'why'. Why a chair close to the background? Thus we dobemsya background lighting without third source.
Why are umbrellas under 45 degrees? Firstly it gives the correct black and white image, and secondly a shadow on the subject will 'fall' outside the frame. Why umbrellas above their heads portrayed? To more three-dimensional image. You may say that this particular scheme you and offer the very beginning? Agreed. But there is little nuance. You must correctly pick the flash and the diameter of the umbrella. If you have adjustable outbreak, it is quite suitable umbrellas with a diameter of not less than 60 cm If you have Flash type UFO SDW-45, it is desirable to have an umbrella with a diameter of 100 cm When all will be exposed, there will probably need to be refined distance from the umbrella to the subject in accordance with your concepts should look like picture to the documents.
