PHOTO BACKDROP TESTING
With winter being a difficult time for photographing models outside, I thought I would try some real photographs as backdrops for my models. I sent 3 photos to York Photo and had them print them in 20-30" poster size. I then mounted the posters on foam-core board. Then I painted another piece of foam-core board a concrete color. These photos are using a Kodak Z740 camera on the "Auto" settings with 2 and 3 unfiltered incandescent bulbs. No flash. No tripod. Strictly experimenting (okay, playing). The photos have all been reduced and cropped.
The following photos were taken with overhead lighting and a single halogen spotlamp. A tripod was also used.
